Yesterday you completed your first draft of your comments for the 'Child's Comments' page for your school report.
You included your reflections on:
Today I would like you to edit and improve your comments before writing them up in your best cursive handwriting.
When we edit and improve, we’re keeping an eye out for three things:
This means correcting any missing punctuation, missing words and misspellings.
This means changing any words or sentences that are not clear, don’t make sense or are a bit repetitive.
This means adding extra words and/or sentences to improve your writing. This could be a single extra adjective or adverb that adds much needed detail.
Like we do in school, you could use a purple pen (or any colour pen or pencil!) to show where you have made corrections, changes and added detail.
I look forward to seeing your work!
