This worksheet is a tool for students to use while they edit their own writing. Students use the checklist as they proof their writing assignments and check off each item as the student sees it in their writing. This checklist is sure to get those quick writers to take a moment and edit their work. I have used this checklist in second grade and it has really helped students in their self editing. Other teachers in my building began using it in their classrooms and saw significant changes in their students self editing behaviors. The checklist reminds students to include necessary components into their writing.
