The acronym CUPS stands for capitalization, usage, punctuation and spelling. As we're doing DOL or Daily Fix-It, I have the students note the type of error they are correcting. They write CUPS in the margin and then circle the letters that show the types of mistakes they fixed. Before they start something such as a timed writing, I remind them to think of CUPS in their own writing.
I made the CUPS writing poster into labels for the front of the students' writing folders. I have the letter-sized poster hanging in the room and then they have the label on the corner of their folder as a reminder. The labels are formatted for Avery 5160 labels.
