General Writing Checklist

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Grades: K - 2

A writing checklist for primary students to use across multiple genres.

Use this writing checklist with your students when working on writing a composition in the primary grades.

Give your students a checklist each time you have asked them to write a composition. Or alternatively, print off a set of checklists on cardstock, cut them out, and provide one for each student to use with a dry erase marker. This will allow the checklist to be wiped clean and used over and over.

The checklist has students reviewing their final copy for:

  • capital letters
  • finger spaces
  • punctuation
  • using the word wall for correct spelling
  • sounding out new words
  • neatest handwriting
  • rereading the text to ensure it makes sense.

This resource also works well when used in a writing center to remind your students of their editing process.
