Student-friendly rubrics to use with Lucy Calkin's Writing Units of Study. This product includes rubrics for informational, narrative, and opinion units. These rubrics combines the resources provided by the Teacher's College for both first grade, allowing first graders to evaluate their writing against first grade expectations and to strive to perform above grade level. These rubrics uses the same requirements, wording, and images as the ones provided by the Teacher's College online resources. On-level expectations are followed by frowning and smiling faces for students to color in and the second grade standards are followed by a star.
In my classroom, I laminate these and add them into student writing folders. My students use their dry erase markers to go through the rubric on their own, with a partner, or with me.
*Please note that the second page is the same for each of these files, as the conventions expectations are consistent across units.
