Let's Talk Writing

So this year my kiddos have really taken to writing. 
I mean REALLY!! 
They LOVE it!!
They love informational, small moment, opinion, choice, you name it. They have really great ideas & have really embraced writing
 but...
They are dropping the ball with conventions! 

I don't know how this happened. I'm teaching all the skills to them...capitals, punctuation, spacing, blah, blah, blah...
They are just not havin' it!
They just seem to disregard the need for any sort of convention. 
So, I'm busting out my good ole friend that I used with pretty good success when I taught kindergarten.
 It looks like this:
It's nothing new! In fact, I've sent it to a gajillion of you over the years! I get emails for this every.single.day! 
It's nothing special, but you WILL have to do some lessons on how to use a checklist. 
If you do it correctly this can be a very handy tool for you & your students! 
Let me know what you think!
Happy Teaching!
