I have my kindergarten students self assess their writing with this writing checklist. I have the students use different-colored highlighters to highlight various components in their writing. For example, they use a green highlighter to mark the capital letters in their writing, a pink highlighter to mark ending punctuation, and a yellow to highlight the word I and the capital letter in names. The highlights provide a good visual for the students- they can easily see the components they have included and missed in their writing (if there are no pink marks on the paper, that means there is no ending punctuation). The highlights also provide me with a quick check of the mechanics with which a child needs more help.
This product can be used in all primary classrooms.
