Kid-Friendly Writing Rubrics (upper elem)

Hi All,

I recently finished translating the PA dept of ed writing rubrics into Kid-Friendly language. I will attach them to the next three posts.

Sorry, they are in PDF because my version of Microsoft office adds an "x" to the end of the document when it's saved and apparently I cannot share those types of files.

I hope someone can use these. Although they are from the state of PA's dept of ed, I can't imagine other states would be too different.

These are fabulous and really help to take the guess work out for the kiddos. they will know exactly what to expect and how they're assessed.

i wrote them in excel, but my microsoft office is the newest or something and gives my files an "x" at the end when they are saved, so i can't just email them as excel spreadsheets. a normal spreadsheet might be called rubric.xls but my program has it as rubric.xlsX and that X prevents someone else from opening it. it's a pain in the butt.

i'm glad many people will find them helpful. i have already started making copies to use them next year. i'm going to have a child grade their draft before their published piece, so they can see what they would give themselves. this way, they can make any last changes before their final draft is made. i think i will give them the option of grading themselves or asking a friend to grade them.

These rubrics are great. I am moving to fifth grade next year. Students in fifth grade have to participate in our state writing assessment. These will be very helpful.

These are wonderful! It's so nice to have a version the kids can understand. I also like your idea of having them grade their own before the final draft using the rubric...it takes out some of the guess work on their part. Also great for the parents to see!

You must have Office 2007. You can share files with others who don't have Office 2007 in the way you save your files. When you click 'Save as" enter your file name then right underneath it lists the file type. Click on the down arrow and save your file as an earlier version of Word. I think is says 1997-2003 version. Then share away!

You just saved me HOURS of work!

Not only had I planned on making our district's rubrics Kid-Friendly, but I also wanted to make them with the terms that match our state test terminology... and, without having to ask you, YOU DID THEM BOTH for me! Wow! I'm going to have start sending you MORE of my "Things to do list" vibes!

Thanks for sharing your work!

lol...since PA tests don't test descriptive writing, i haven't done that yet. however, i'm hoping by the end of the summer to have a kid-friendly descriptive rubric, because i still think it is important.

Thanks so much for doing this! Just an FYI, when you go to save the file, you can change that type of document to a .doc When the "save" box comes up, look for the "format" button, it should allow you to choose the type of file you want.
