We write for other people to read and enjoy. Make sure others can read and understand our work by using an editing checklist. Have students edit their own writing before swapping with their writing partners to peer edit.
First graders check off:
You can read my writing.
I used punctuation marks.
I used capitals.
I used my best spelling.
I reread to see if it made sense.
(Writing samples are not included.)
This editing checklist is also included in all of the first grade writing curriculum units from our store.
