Tired of students telling you they have checked over/edited their work only to find that they haven't made any changes? Would you love to see your students edit their spelling, punctuation, grammar and capitalization on their own? Do you wish you had 5 seconds to breathe between them finishing their drafts and teacher editing time? These templates can help you build a tool that allows your students to independently edit their writing.
I use these in my special education classroom and I'm surprised every year by how many students are successful with using them.
Students move beads up and down a slide as they finish each step of the writing process. Each step is laid out in a simple, easy to understand chunk. Even if student's don't finish in one day, the tool easily slips in a work pocket or in the draft book, saving their place. Once they are finished, the last step is to edit with the teacher!
