With this set of daily edits, between Monday to Thursday,
students are exposed to short paragraphs that they will edit both for grammar and word choice. On Friday, students are given a writing prompt in which to write, revise and publish a paragraph of their own, using some of the skills they have practiced throughout the week.
You can choose for students to mark just mark up the edits to be made to each paragraph (using the first 2 pages), or have them re-write the whole paragraph, to include a change in word choice and voice. The
Friday writing prompt is the last page in this packet, and can be used for assessment or for a rough draft of a longer writing piece.
NO TIME IN YOUR ELA BLOCK??
These daily edits can be used as morning work, do nows, in literacy
centers, or for daily homework.
This week focuses on New Year’s traditions around the world, however each week of daily edits will have a different focus, primarily non-fiction - to integrate both reading, social studies and science concepts.
