Being able to self-check your written work is an important executive function skill for all students. I've created a new free download that gives your student a writing and editing checklist they can use at their desk or have hanging on the wall.
This writing and editing checklist is based on the CUPS editing checklist introduced in The Write Genre (2004) by Lori Jamison Rog and Paul Kropp.
When I was working with older writers, 2nd grade, and above I used a modified version of this checklist that I added to. Many of the children I was working with had difficulty keeping their letters on the line and spacing their words appropriately. So I added these two things to look for when editing their work.
Many children can benefit from visual reminders, not just written checklists. So I've included clip-art on these checklists to help give students a visual reminder that corresponds with what they are to check their work for.
Since each student is different, I've included a variety of checklists, some with color, others black and white, some with clip-art, and others without. Just pick which option you think would be best for your student to use.
There are also individual checklists that can be used at a child's desk as a reminder.
I've also included Google Slide versions that you can access in this PDF file. If you are working virtually with students, they can still benefit from a checklist during written work. You can also send a checklist to them to use at home.
