Clip to ScrapBook #5

I agree that it's so much practice and modeling. When I do editing with kids, they do the actual editing. We may talk, I may suggest, but they do the editing. I also have kids circle the capitals with green crayon (green light) and circle ending punctuation with a red crayon. (red light) This has helped. It took a lot of practice not to get a laundry list. They needed permission to write a word after a period if there was room! I point out a lot in books as we read and I do a lot of writing on the board. Hang in there!
