A Simple away to Evaluate Student Writing

Here you will find a basic writing rubric for elementary grade students, along with samples of an expository and narrative rubric. Plus: Learn how to use a writing rubric.


This is part of the free editing set from First Grade Wow. For kindergarten, I use it to show what they can do (smiley face in the check box) and what their newest personal challenge is (I highlight the check box). They keep it in their writing folders. It helps differentiate learning and gives each student focus. There are many other useful pages in the packet, too. All free!
