Non-fiction writing checklist

With inspiration from an amazing kinder teacher at our school, I revamped our writing checklist, combining my old one with her new-to-me one...and here is the result:
(I have them ready to print on quarter sheets of paper so students can use them to check their writing themselves.)




I also made this to put on students' new writing folders as a nice reminder to KEEP working! :)

Let me know what you think!

I can't get it to print! :(

I actually saved them as photos, not PDFs, since I did use clip art, and I want to make sure I'm not using clip art incorrectly/sharing it in a way that would violate terms of use. I think you could save the image of each item and then print that individually--but it won't be a document to print, rather a picture (this way the clip art is embedded in the document, and can't be reused).

The colors of the markers are beautiful. What kind do you use?

Alex said...

Thanks!! I love to use Mr. Sketch markers! The smell and the colors=amazing!

This is fabulous! I would love permission to share this example at my Science and Social Studies are Reading Too session in Chicago next week. If permission is granted, I'll definitely credit you.
