Everyone loves Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann. In my classroom the students enjoy writing additional Safety Tips for Officer Buckle and Gloria to teach.
This file includes a planning page, as well as a writer's checklist, (which I created for the students to check their work before they turn it in). These items are great materials for teaching the writing process and encouraging students to begin editing their own work. You also can collect the checklist with their writing assignment to use as a rubric for grading.
