Makeover Madness: TPT {Seller} Challenge

Linking up with Teach Create Motivate, Peppy Zesty Teacherista,Third in Hollywood, and Sparkling in Second Grade for the #tptsellerchallenge!

I'm glad the girls came up with this because I have been needing some motivation to get back into the TPT swing of things.

I did a big overhaul on my Common Core Writing Rubrics & Checklists! If you own these, please go back and re-download! 

What's New? 
  • I changed the scales from 0-3 to 1-4, I needed it this way and some customers indicated they preferred it because it aligned with Marzano's scales. Nobody wants to get a score of 0.  The rubrics are scored as "Needs Development" "Approaching" "Proficient" and "Exemplary"
  • New fonts-- nothing too cutesy but freshened up :)
  • BONUS: I included Writing Progress Checklists in each of them! 

And it is your lucky day because for just a HOT SECOND you can get the bonus Writing checklists for free in my store----with one condition--- you follow my TPT shop there! It's only a click. :)

I love using these fast, easy assessments to stick in the report card. Check, check, check, boom the parents are informed. ((If you miss the freebie they are included in each of my rubric packs))

Does Common Core not apply to you? Comment which state standards you need Writing Rubrics/Checklists for below and I'll add it to my list. Ohio is next, then Florida... 
What else do you need teacher-friends?
