Finished with the first draft of informational writing? Let this handy checklist guide students through a peer review conference! Students will check for correct punctuation, capitalization, complete sentences, and staying on topic.
Revision is an important skill for writers, but it can be tricky to develop. In this activity, students will practice their revision skills by adding details to make a story come to life and then rewriting their new and improved story.
It’s more fun to revise with a partner! After writing personal narratives, have students share their writing with a partner. Partners should identify at least three parts in the narrative where three descriptive details could be added.
Use this handy worksheet to help your students (and you!) keep track of their writing goals. Refer to the goals during writing workshop conferences, and be sure to have students add to them and revise them as needed.
