Try asking yourself these questions to check over the conventions in your writing:
- Did I apply my strategies to help spell words correctly?
- Did I use my resources to help spell unknown words?
I spell all or most of my words correctly?
I remember correct punctuation?
I check for capital letters?
I edit my writing to check for grammar mistakes?
my writing make sense when I read it aloud?
- Is my handwriting neat and easy for others to read?
- Does this work show my personal best?
