This product contains 12 writing check-ups. I use these at the beginning of a Writer's Workshop lesson twice a week to quickly give me a formative assessment.
I grade these based on a 6 point system. Students earn a point for each of the following:
Capital letter usage - 1 point
End mark usage - 1 point
If it makes sense - 1 point
Handwriting - 1 point
Using all 3 words - 1 point
Spelling all 3 words correctly - 1 point
