This simple, picture-based rubric is a wonderful starting point for young writers. This rubric can be used for whole group mini-lessons in early grades or as a self-check assessment as your students become more proficient writers.
This visual tool highlights five basic areas for students to watch for in their writing. They are:
1) Even Spacing
2) Letter Formation
4) Story Content
5) Looks Neat
If you need additional lesson ideas and topic extensions, I have a 40+ page unit that includes anchor charts, mini-lessons, a writing conference rubric, and other classroom extension ideas/materials.
