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?
Start the camping checklist from scratch.Sitting down, create a list of anything you would like brought and everything you would like on your next camping excursion. Keep the list handy so should anything be thought up, it can be easily written down. Also, online camping checklists can be used as a guideline. These are typically free to use and easy to print right from the website. How can this work for you? Add to this list you own ideas of what you need and don't need. Most of the lists available on the Internet are generalized in nature so adding a bit of your personality flair. To even find these list, you will need to do an Internet search using the Yahoo Search Engine or Google Search Engine. One of the more interesting things to do when trying to make out a camping list, is visualize what you would like to do and eat as well as fun activities associated with camping such as hiking, swimming or even singing. What will you be wearing should the weather be too hot or it gets colder?
