This product can be used during whole group writing lessons, small groups, or during individual writing conferences. First, students will self-assess their own writing. It is helpful to use student writing as an example to self-assess (we all know little ones will say they do everything perfectly). Students will then create a quarterly writing goal. At the end of the quarter students will assess whether or not they achieved their goal.
Suggested goals range from using correct finger spacing in writing, editing for correct capital letters, using dialogue, etc. I keep these quarterly sheets in my data folders and share them with parents during conferences.
