As you know, several weeks ago, our students began their journey through the writing process as they wrote their narratives on wordless picture books. During this process, they were introduced to the various “Editor’s Marks” that are intended to be used to make corrections during the Revising and Editing Stages of the writing process.
As a way to practice utilizing these marks, our “writers” participate in a daily proofreading exercise. For each day of the school week, students work independently on an assigned proofreading exercise. Once all students complete the exercise, a student is then chosen to be the “teacher.” As the “teacher,” the student leads the class in reviewing the exercise on the SMARTboard.
