As a relief/substitute teacher, you see many great ideas created by teachers. Here is one such idea. Items one to nine, below, were on a poster with the title, "Writing Checklist" in a Year Three class classroom. What follows each item in the checklist below is what I would explain to my class about each item. (I have reorganised the original checklist into ideas I feel fit together, e.g. presentation). Have I read my writing? Does my writing have all the ideas I wanted to include? Does my writing make sense? Is the story in the right sequence? Are there any confusing words or phrases? Have I left out any words? You can leave out 'little' words because your mind works faster than you can write. The next four deal with the presentation, particularly punctuation. Do my sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop?
When setting up your checklist, the first things will be to decide on a date and to have an idea of your budget for the party. Once you know your budget, you will have a better idea of how many people you can invite. Keeping your budget in mind, create a list of people to invite. Depending on the formality of your party, you can Mail, email or simply call your guests. Make to sure to have your guests RSVP so will you know how many people will be attending the celebration.
