Mini checklists for students to paste onto their writing when writing for the purpose to describe. Children refer to it at the beginning of writing to see how they can be successful. Part way through the lesson they self assess ticking in the boxes what they have achieved. Then they look at what they will focus on for the rest of the lesson. They may put a check mark or a number to show how many times they have done something. At the end of the lesson they share and celebrate with their group, partner or the class.
