This resource includes a sample from my complete “Find 10 Editing Skills Writing Practice” resource. To purchase the entire resource, click HERE!
The complete resource includes 75 quick editing practice warm-ups in which students are asked to “Find 10” editing mistakes in each paragraph or short passage.
The students love this type of editing activity and treat the paragraphs as scavenger hunts for writing errors. There is a “means to the end” as once they have found 10 grammar, spelling or punctuation mistakes, they are finished editing the selection.
This activity is perfect for writing journals, writer’s workshop, whole group writing warm-ups and more.
I’ve included an answer key showing exactly where the editing errors are in each activity. In the complete resource, I’ve also included a “Find 10” editing example poster.
For more monthly "themed" editing practice with interesting passages about holidays, interesting dates in history and famous birthdays that month, take a look at my "Monthly Editing Practice" for the entire year: (Each month can be purchased separately.)
