These checklists are meant to help your students clearly understand the writing skills they are supposed to demonstrate during a unit of study. The checklists have clear pictures that make them very easy for preliterate students to use. I have been using these checklists in my own classroom for 6 years and have found them to be very helpful to the students. My colleagues have also observed that their students quickly take to using the checklists. They are a helpful tool for students to use when revising their own work, having peer conferences, or teacher conferences.
Additionally, I have included the writing templates that I use for each unit of study.
The pages are all 8.5x11.
The units covered by these checklists and templates are:
1. Launching (1 page narratives)
2. Three page narratives
3. Writing for Readers
4. Pattern Books
5. How To Books
6. All About Books
7. Persuasive Letters
8. Small Moments
