This student writing checklist covers both revising and editing, and is appropriate for grades 2 through 4. It is worded in student-friendly language with examples to illustrate what each item means. Student can check their own writing for sentence variation, details, sentence sense, run-on sentences, interesting word usage, end punctuation, commas for items in a series, capitalization, and spelling. The checklist is designed to be used with the whole class initially, but then gradually moving students to independent evaluation of their writing.
This checklist can be used in two ways: print on copy paper and keep a stock in your classroom for students to use when they are ready, or print one copy for each student to keep in a page protector in their writing notebook. Using a page protector, students can check off each box with a dry erase marker and erase when they are finished, reusing it all year long and saving you copies!
