Literacy checklist for parents, carers and students
Every time you finish a piece of written work use a green pen to correct any errors from the list.
Punctuation: have you used a suitable range of punctuation marks?
Spelling: is your spelling correct? Begin with the key words from the lesson and then check other words that you are unsure of in the dictionary.
Vocabulary: have you used vocabulary that is appropriate to the task and its audience? – ask your teacher if you are not sure.
Capital letters: do all of your sentences and any proper nouns begin with a capital letter?
Sentences: have you written in full and clear sentences? If you are in a creative subject they may need to be varied for effect.
Paragraphs: have you separated and ordered your ideas into clear, logical paragraphs that help your reader understand what you are writing?
Whole text: is your writing suitable for its audience, purpose and form?
