Student checklists for Opinion Writing based on Lucy Calkin's Writing Units of Study. The checklist combines the checklists provided by the Teacher's College for both first grade, allowing first graders to evaluate their writing against first grade expectations and to strive to perform above grade level. The checklist uses the same requirements, wording, and images as the ones provided by the Teacher's College online resources.

I also have visual rubrics available forinformational and narrative writing. Please note that the second page is the same for each of these files, as the conventions expectations are consistent across units.
