This is a scaffold to the Orton-Gillingham COPS for checking your writing. My co-teacher and I created this document to assist the younger writers because it was often confusing to explain "O" = "organization" to the students. We broke it into more descriptive parts so the students understood exactly what they were looking for in their writing. We used this in Kindergarten and half-way through first grade. Mid-year in first grade, we transitioned to Orton-Gillingham's original COPS to prepare for second grade. Hope this helps your young writers!
