I have created twenty creative full color or gray scale "January" themed "editing" task cards. Each task card includes a short editable paragraph about a famous person or event pertaining to January. The students will edit the capitalization, punctuation, grammar and spelling on each card.
I've also included twenty "Check Your Work" cards in which the students will check their editing work and look at the "editing things to remember" checkpoints.
I've used this program for the last three years with my students and they are master editors by the end of the year and their writing has improved by leaps and bounds. This year I will use two cards a week for whole class tasks and place the rest in my writing center.

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.
