Personal Narrative Writing Checklist ~ Grades 4-8

We are writing personal narrative stories in grades four and five right now.  The part that teachers "bemoan" is editing for ideas as well as punctuation and spelling.  Our fifth grade team decided to edit using color coding for each area.

We underlined:
The hook in pink,
The events in blue,
The conclusion in red,
The lesson learned in purple,
Sensory words/adjectives in green.

Next steps:  Editing with paper and pencil areas that need "beefing up."  To be continued...

I uploaded this as a freebie on TPT.  Give it a go and please leave me feedback.
