Thank you for viewing my editing and revising pack!

I have used these two strategies with my students for awhile. They write the letters at the top of their paper and cross them off as they complete each step. I hope you can use them in your classroom too!

I have include a single sheet with both strategies on it. I have used this in the following ways:
Laminated and kept in desk
In a sheet protector in students’ ELA binders
Reduced size in ELA journal

I begin by teaching COPS as my students are more familiar with proofreading/ editing than revising. When teaching that, I use the individual cards with just COPS. I print them on cardstock, laminate them or have students glue them in their journal for reference. In my classroom when we have a resource that we use often as a reference, we glue it on the inside cover of their journal, so it is quick an easy to find.

I make a poster size of the single size as well. To do this, go to file and then print in Adobe Reader when you have the product open. You will see options for “Page Size & Handling.” Select “Poster” and decide how large you want your poster by adjust the percentage. The preview will show how many sheets of paper it will take. You can also print “cut marks” to help you trim your sheets. Once trimmed, tape them together – I usually do this on the back for a better look.
