Revision Review

Revision Review

Many children resist revision because they feel they are "done," or because they are attached to their first draft and don't want to make changes. Instead of revising their work, practise with sample texts, reviewing specific skills like correcting run-on sentences. Once your child is comfortable with the revision process, they will be ready to try it on their own writing.
