A pencil-themed writing checklist poster.

Display this writing checklist poster in your classroom as a visual reminder of the details students should check when editing their writing.

Simply cut out the three sections of the poster and combine them to create a pencil.

Use this poster with the General Writing Checklist. This printable checklist uses the same visuals as the poster to help reinforce each step.

This resource was created in conjunction with Kaitlyn Woods at our Let’s Collaborate event.

This is ace! It would be amazing if it could be reduced to a small size – say 4 to a page to laminate and give to students to use at their tables while writing.
