This is part of the free editing set from First Grade Wow. For kindergarten, I use it to show what they can do (smiley face in the check box) and what their newest personal challenge is (I highlight the check box). They keep it in their writing folders. It helps differentiate learning and gives each student focus. There are many other useful pages in the packet, too. All free!
Use this growing Writing Checklist to create indepedent writers during Writing Workshop! Begin with just one item on the checklist, and use the corresponding paper with that same checklist item at the top. Continue to add items and change papers, as the year progresses!
