Editing can be boring to many, which is why I came up with an interactive way to edit their essay. These are all suggestions based on my experience running an event, in my own classroom.
I created a Writing Wonderland Itinerary, which includes the editing process for their essay, which is interactive. The Itinerary guides students through the editing process by:
•Through the Looking Glass:
•punctuation, spelling, paragraph
•Content for a narrative (beginning, middle, end, etc.)
•Guiding the students through a peer edit
If you would like to purchase the following, it helps with the experience. I purchased most of the items at the local 99cent store.
1.Table cloths – blue and white
2.Tea Cups – My local Goodwill
3.Flowers for the table (this year, mine were donated, and are real)
4.Signs holders for the table numbers (purchased on Amazon)
5.Crayons/markers for the editing process
