I have included 75 quick editing practice warm-ups and four examples in which students will be asked to “Find 10” editing mistakes in the paragraph or short passage they are given.
The students love this type of activity and almost treat them as scavenger hunts for writing errors. There is a “means to the end” as once they have found 10 grammar, spelling or punctuation mistakes, they are finished editing the selection.
This activity is perfect for writing journals, writer’s workshop, whole group writing warm-ups and more.
I’ve included an answer key showing exactly where the editing errors are in each activity as well as a “Find 10” editing example poster.

About the Seller
After spending almost 30 years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Consultant" in which I've worked with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I am an adjunct field representative supervising student teachers.
Over the years I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade; as well as serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing Coach and finally a Gifted Specialist for many years.
I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years which caused me to realize there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher prep and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of our curriculum standards that students currently face. The products I offer require little teacher prep, are fun and creative and provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even your brightest learners.
