This editing checklist can be used for any piece of writing your students write. Students will check for punctuation, capitalization, sentences, paragraphs, spelling, and neatness. This file includes two different editing checklists. Laminate it and students can use the same checklist throughout the year, or make copies and students can turn it in with their writing. Since using this with my 4th graders, their editing skills have improved dramatically and they are more aware of their errors.
