Kindergarten Writing Checklist

Writing is not usually a favorite subject among children. Writing requires a child to balance ideas, grammar, spelling, and punctuation. It can be overwhelming to a child. Due to all the pressure and stress, a lot of children want to run at the thought of writing. However, if a child can take more ownership over her writing by editing it herself then lessons will be reinforced and it won’t feel so intimidating. This is what this COPS Writing Checklist come to the rescue. The kindergarten writing checklist uses the acronlym COPS. C=Capitalization, O=Organization, P=Punctuation, and S=Spelling. Keeping this in mind, your child can easily learn to edit her own writing while reinforcing grammar and spelling rules. Use this COPS editing checklist with kindergartners and grade 1 students too.
