4th Grade - Writing Ready® Editing Bundle

4th Grade - Writing Ready® Editing Bundle


Customers who used our 4th grade STAAR WARS Writing Task Cards loved them, and many emailed us asking us for more. So we listened! But instead of creating more STAAR review sets, we thought it would be even better to have task card sets that could be used WHILE you’re teaching, instead of just to review afterward. This way you can measure learning as you go. So, we decided to create task card sets for every TEKS Readiness Standard for reading, math, and writing. We will have 2 sets available for each TEKS Readiness Standard, a basic set and an advanced set, which allows the teacher to assess learning at various learning stages, making them perfect for differentiation.


When you purchase this BUNDLE, you get all of our Basic & Advanced WRITING READY 4th Grade Editing Task Cards – 10 total sets!! These WRITING READY task card sets focus on the five TEKS Readiness Standards for 4th grade editing:

•use and understand the function of the following parts of speech in the context of reading, writing and speaking (4.20A)
•use the complete subject and the complete predicate in a sentence (4.20B)
•use capitalization (4.21B)
•recognize and use punctuation marks (4.21C)
•spell words with more advanced orthographic patterns rules (4.22A)

The 5 BASIC sets help your students practice & apply their understanding of the editing skills listed below at a simpler, basic level with shorter texts and fewer answer choices, while the 5 ADVANCED sets feature rigorous, higher-level thinking questions with longer texts and more answer choices, making the pair of sets perfect for differentiation.


*Though our WRITING READY Task Cards are made with our Texas teacher friends in mind, they are also aligned with 4th grade CCSS, making them easily usable by any 4th grade teacher teaching editing skills all over the U.S.*

Instructions are included for 4 methods of review: task cards review in centers/groups/pairs/individuals, a SCOOT game, Quiz-Quiz-Trade, and a “Be the Teacher” game, but these cards can be used in variety of other ways to meet your needs.
