Do you have students that forget their capitals? Leave off punctuation? Have no spaces between words? Maybe skip words?
I came across a brilliant writing template the teacher had made up for her students. I have subbed in this first grade class several times and I see how it really works for them. I wanted to make something similar, so I created a template myself!
Students write their sentences and then have a friend check off or initial the boxes to show that the student has done that thing on their paper. The box even gives an example.
Then the students can fix anything that they forgot or left off. Finally, they can draw their picture to go with their writing.
I have seen the improvement in these kids since they’ve started using this paper. They are less likely to leave off punctuation, because they want that line signed!
