Product Description
Expert Editors
Do you ever find yourself frustrated when you ask your students to "edit" their writing, only to find that they bring it right back to you saying they did? I was in this same boat and needed something to help my kiddos see what "editing" entails. So, I created Expert Editors.

Included in this product are 30 pages, 4 sentences per page, that will help your kiddos become “Expert Editors.” Each page has a specific skill listed that the students focus on as they are correcting the sentences. For example, if the students were focused on proper nouns, while correcting the sentences, they would look for proper nouns that were written wrong and correct them.

The focus skills the students will work on are:
• Capital letters
• Question marks
• Exclamation marks
• Periods
• Commas in a Series
• Contractions
• Possessive Nouns
• Proper Nouns
• Commas in Dates & Letters
• Titles in Plays
• Capitalizing holidays, months, & days
• Capitalizing and underlining book titles
• Abbreviations
• Capitalizing I

There are also about 5 high frequency words per page that the students will focus on correcting. Those are listed in a box at the top, so the students can refer to the correct way to spell these words.

There are three versions of each page, so all your writers can be successful. This is helpful because after the students finish correcting each sentence, they will rewrite the sentence correctly on the lines on their paper.

After using this resource the entire year, my students transfer the skills they learned through “Expert Editor” to their own writing and even were spelling the high frequency words correctly more often.

Included:
• Tips for how I use this in my classroom
• 30 Expert Editor Pages (3 versions of each page)
• An Editing Mark Page
• Answer Keys with all editing marks as well as the sentences written correctly

**If you own my WONDERS Centers, these are the same Expert Editors pages that are used in those resources, just compiled in one place.
