Independence plays such a role in our lives as Primary Teachers. We want students to be independently thinking and reflecting on their work.
I created these writing checklists for my own 1st graders for our Work-on-Writing time during Daily 5. With these checklists, students’ work was more focused and developed. As students worked, they would grab a checklist and staple it to the corner of their writing.Before sharing writing with our class or asking for a friend’s feedback, students were expected to reflect on their own work.
Included in this resource...
- 5-Star Writing
- How-To Writing
- Open-response writing
* (4-to-a-page) for each mode of writing
- 1/2 page option (a celebration and a question)
- 1/4 page option (letter format)
These checklists are classroom tested and approved. They are ideal for focusing your students’ writing and writing towards a goal.
