The Writing Process: First Drafts and Revisions

The Writing Process: First Drafts and Revisions

Make sure to let your child know the importance of revising work. No one gets their writing perfect after one try! Children can read their writing aloud to listen to their ideas and then change them to match the message or thoughts they want to convey.
As students are drafting their stories, you can have them share aloud portions of their writing. Then they can discuss how to revise their writing to eliminate redundant or unnecessary information.
