Editing Marks

Teaching a simple list of editing marks can help students develop a common language and common approach for fixing mistakes in writing. Young learners can practice editing marks during Pair Peer Review, during daily grammar practice, and while working independently to fix their own mistakes.

We recommend making this handout into a poster and hanging on your wall so that all students in class can see it and refer to it.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
