This file contains two sheets, one full size sheet containing reminders to students to be "super star writers". It reminds students to write their name and date, capitalize the beginning of a sentence, put punctuation at the end of a sentence, use finger spaces, and use the word wall to aid in spelling. Each reminder coincides with a point on the star.
On the next sheet, there are small reminders that can be cut out and taped or glued on any writing or reading sheet before it is photocopied to remind students what to do on every paper to be a star writer. My students know that after they check each step, they can trace over part of the star, with an end result of having all 5 points traced.
Put the poster up as a reminder where students pass in their papers and make sure to attach the reminders to their work. It is a great step in teaching students to be responsible for their work!
