Second graders and other young elementary students often find it challenging to edit their own work, but I find it helps to have them practice by working on editing other writing. I find that if they practice editing work that is not their own, then their ability to check over their own work improves. I created an editing practice activity that you can download by clicking here or on the image below if you'd like to try it with your class.
If you do download it, please take a moment or two and leave some feedback. It means so much to me when you do! Thanks!
