I have been reading the Mercy Watson book series aloud to my class. We are in the middle of the last book and will probably finish it up tomorrow. I asked my students to make predictions in their writing journals about what they thought would happen in the next chapter. After finishing their predictions, they grabbed a pre-cut checklist from our writing station and glued it inside their spiral notebook alongside their journal entry. Then each child used the rubric to self evaluate their writing. They LOVE doing this and it has helped us so much this year! Here are a few pictures I snapped this afternoon to share with you.
If you are interested in the posters and rubric you can get them (HERE).
Here are some images for you to see what's included. :)
Happy writing! :)
