General Writing Checklist Poster

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 2 pages | Grades: K - 2

A writing checklist poster to use with your primary students across multiple genres.

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

Print out the resource on cardstock for added durability. Cut out the pencil pieces on both pages. Connect the pieces of the pencil together using sticky tack, glue, or tape. Hang the checklist poster in your writing center area, where you conduct your guided writing groups, or in a prominent place in the room as a visual reference for your students.

The poster reminds students to check 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

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version and letter or tabloid-size.
