Why Lesson Planet?
Encourage your fourth graders to edit their written work before composing a final draft. With this lesson, learners have previously answered a writing prompt about winning a million dollars. Using their first draft and the proofreading sheet, they will revisit their original work. They will highlight their most favorite aspect and decide on ways to make their paper better. Then, they switch with a partner and fill out the same proofreading sheet for their piece. Finally, they are ready to write a final draft!
