Do you struggle with students coming to you with unfinished work? Have them use these writing checklists. With this Self-Check pencils your students can make sure that they are following the expectations that you have set out for each writing activity! Go over each step and have students track progress. I use post-its and then put the post-it on their paper as they turn them in to me at the end of writing. You could also put the posters on your board and use magnets. Each check-list corresponds with the writing poster!
