Do you need a
Primary Writing Rubric?

Are you looking for an easy way to assess writing in your classroom?

The Primary Writing Rubric is what you need!

No more fuss about grades for report cards.

No more worry about how to explain to parents what is going on in writing.

No more defending yourself blindly to administration.

Isn't that what you want?

If you:

  • Model writing through the Writer’s Workshop
  • Teach a primary grade
  • See writing as more than just “conventions”
  • Want to use a tool to guide your lesson planning
  • Maintain writing portfolios

… Then this is for you!

This rubric takes what we value most in writing and uses those skills to come up with an overall assessment of a student’s body of work.

The skills we focus on are:

  • Attitude
  • Writing Process
  • Writes for all occasions
  • Topic / Purpose
  • Productivity
  • Application of Phonological knowledge
  • Language Repertoire
  • Readability

Most schools use the terms “unsatisfactory”, “needs improvement”, “satisfactory” and “excellent”, so that are the benchmarks we set.

We have used this rubric in both of our classrooms with many different students and find that it always gives a fair assessment. We hope that you find that also!
