Writing Wednesday: Revision Cards and Mentor Text Videos


SCREENSHOT OF REVISION CARDS

 

Revision cards break the task of revision into manageable chunks. They feature revision suggestions for:

* beginnings

* description

* staying on topic

* titles

* putting boring words to bed

* visualizing

* onomatopoeia

* sensory words

* details

* endings

* strong verbs

* clearing up questions the reader might have

They fit nicely into a little box like this one from Really Useful Boxes. You can find these at office supply stores for 25 cents before school starts.

Mentor Text Videos

I’m going to try to make the occasional video on writing skills featuring mentor texts. My first one on onomatopoeia is uploaded to my YouTube channel and TeacherTube. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified when new videos are uploaded.
