Florida 4th 5th Grade FSA Writing Test Planning & Revision Checklists
In light of the changes to the state ELA test, I wanted better guidelines to help prepare my students. I hope this helps your class as much as it did mine!
This product includes:
the standards specifically tested on the writing portion, in kid-friendly language, with Depth of Knowledge levels;
a planning sheet each for the expository/explanatory and opinion/persuasive writing prompts;
a revision checklist each for the expository/explanatory and opinion/persuasive writing prompts.
All are aligned directly to the rubrics and guidelines put forth by the state, designed for student, teacher, and peer review to help all involved become more familiar with the new format and expectations.
Unlike in previous years, the two possible writing tasks are not expository vs. narrative, but expository vs. opinion, which involve very similar parameters, making the resources nearly identical.
PLEASE NOTE: This does NOT include reading samples, which are available from the state. http://www.fsassessments.org/
Please see the state standards for actual wording. Florida Standards CPALMS
Feedback is always appreciated, but please contact me before leaving other than straight A’s. I am always looking to improve!
