Fab 5 for Writing {Student Rubric}

Student Friendly Writing Checklist Fab 5 for WritingOne of my favorite tools for strengthening writing is my Fab 5 for Writing Checklist.  I love how my kiddos take responsibility for what they put on paper.  By holding themselves accountable for stretching out words, adding capital letters and punctuation, using finger space and re-reading their work, they have truly grown as writers.  Their honesty in their self-evaluation always amazes me!

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.
