  1. Melissa S.

    My students found the topics engaging and the checklist on the side helped them get all of the mistakes quite easily. Lots of debate in my classroom around spelling American VS Canadian though.

  2. Jessica S.

    This resource was easy to use and a great addition to my test prep resources.

  3. Cindy Quinones

    I’ve used this during my Literature Success class and my students absolutely love it.

  4. Amy B.

    These are great! The paragraphs are interesting, and the students love finding the errors belonging to someone else!

  5. Plonge

    I love them, even if my grade 5 students find grammar boring. We use it as their morning bell work when they come in each day.

  6. Jason R.

    This was a good resource that my students enjoyed although I wish it was editable.

  7. Ericka Mooney

    I found this to be an excellent resource. I found this to be an excellent resource.

  8. Katie Griswold

    This is great. My students have been “forgetting” where to put punctuation, capitals, etc. and this is nice to have them complete. I like how they need to write the paragraph with the fixes afterwards.

  9. Alyssa I.

    This resource is engaging and helped reinforce concepts my students are learning in the resource room.

  10. Angela Parrish Miller

    These come in handy to help my students review their editing skills.

  11. Kelly B.

    This was a great resource to use for morning work. We did one every Tuesday morning and then corrected it as a class. Some of them had some errors, but overall was a great activity for reviewing proper grammar and punctuation.

  12. Laura M.

    My students loved using this resource in the classroom! A life-saver!!

  13. Cassidy W.

    This has become a guiding resource for my grammar instructions. I use these every week to tell me what we need to cover for the week.

  14. Teaching Ahead of the Game

    This resource is fantastic. My students actually enjoy finding all of the mistakes.

  15. Edgar R.

    great resource, it was so easy to use the students liked it.

  16. Andrea S.

    I really was excited about this as I am working on proofreading with my group of middle school students in Language Arts. The slides are ready to go with highlighting options for dragging which is really an awesome aspect for some kiddos with fine motors difficulties or those that are new to using the computer. I was hoping to edit the material on the slides because I work with students with a range of reading abilities which means they also have a range of spelling skills. Tanya offered options for me to that I could focus on the grammar (verb agreement), capitalization and punctuation. Really grateful for this adjustment and Tanay!

  17. Sophia K.

    My students enjoy the activity. We compete against one another but I like it because it gets them questioning their writing skills.

  18. Jessica W.

    I really like this resource. It gives them a chance to notice the different types of mistakes and then to remodel sentences into better sentences. My kids are starting to understanding complex and compound sentences now!

  19. Talia C.

    These are perfect for daily warm ups. My kids love fixing errors and editing. Just what I was looking for. Would love to see more on a variety of topics.

  20. All LIT Up

    Wonderful resource! Exactly what I was looking for!

    Great product. Used it during ELA Word Work Center. Students found it challenging but not too fustruating.

  25. Sarah McAlexander

    This is a great resource for small group work! I have been using this as a rotation in my small groups and the students are engaged the whole time.

  26. Katie P.

  31. Marilyn M.

    This is a comprehensive resource and just what I was looking for–editing practice!

  32. Martha T.

    This is a fantastic resource! I am using it with a student I am tutoring in writing/ELA this summer. We complete part 1 of each page together, and he completes part 2 independently. The sheets provide so much opportunity for practice and discussion of writing conventions.

  33. Tanya Marshall

    This was perfect for morning work! I also used it as a review for students struggling in small group.

  34. Rhonda M.

    My students struggled with editing their own work, so we used this to practice.

  35. GRISELDA N.

    This is such a great resource to practice editing. I can see my students’ confidence growing as they are able to identify the errors in the paragraphs.

    This was a great way for my 4th graders to practice editing writing! Thank you!

  43. Kaleena M.

    My students really like this activity. It was easy for them to start understanding how to do edits.

  44. Melinda D.

    If you are on the fence about whether or not to buy this product, don’t be. My students and I absolutely love this resource! Not only are my students learning grammar and editing skills, but they are also learning the correct way to form sentences and write paragraphs. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this product is. The fact that it tells you how many errors are in the paragraph is an added bonus! I would buy this over and over again if I had to.

  45. Julia A.

    I used the first activity yesterday with my students. I printed it out, and they worked with a partner to find the errors. They enjoyed it.

  46. Resources for Visual Learners

    I am loving these paragraphs for editing. We correct the first paragraph together for practice and then my students edit the second one independently.

  47. Teresa Rocha

    I loved using this product with my students because they are still struggling with the Paragraph Writing process. Thanks!

  48. Jennifer H.

    This is the perfect resource for morning work and independent work stations! I love how the students practice identifying grammatical errors and rewriting the paragraph. This resource is great for grammar practice and fluent writing!

  49. Morgan G.

    This was a great resource! Loved all the editing examples and the checklist, which made it manageable for my students. Thanks!

  50. Jennifer J.

    Love this resource!!

  51. sue T.

    My studernts have really enjoyed this product to help them review their editing skills.

  52. Fantastic in Fourth Grade

    This is something that I find is very useful for my students. It is something that I can easily assign for classwork, homework, or even a quick assessment. Once they get used to the idea, they can work quickly and practice their grammar skills!

  53. NiCole T.

    My students really enjoyed this product. Thanks for all your hard work.

  54. Victor S.

    This is a wonderful resource to teach paragraph editing! I bought this resource because editing is something my students were rushing, and these worksheets really help! Each week has two paragraphs so that you can model and provide student practice, and each page has a checklist so that students know what to look for in the editing step. I love Tanya’s materials because she is so thorough; instead of going in order, I identified what my students were struggling with and started with paragraphs that targeted those skills. Then I set out some remainders as a center. Tanya’s intro materials also have a lot of really great ideas about how to extend paragraph editing, and I’m totally snagging the meme one!

  55. Christina W.

    Great resource, thank you!

  56. Susan O.

    I LOVED having this to make my students more responsible for proofreading. They got frustrated with it though, if I used too many.

  57. Buttercup Learning by Teacher Kris

    My students struggle with editing their own work. We use this as a tool to practice our editing skills without feeling like they’ve done their own writing incorrectly. It has helped them be more aware of their writing.

  58. Rachel Miller

    Engaging topics and great practice for editing paragraphs!

  59. Julie Hadfield

    This was easy to use and very helpful for my struggling students.

  60. Alison Pigott

  61. Katelynn Hulsey

    Great daily review on editing!

  62. FunInRoom111

    This was a great resource to help my student to understand how to properly edit a writing piece. It had a variety of grammatical errors that made it challenging yet engaging. Great resource!

  63. Madoka Mason

  69. Donna A.

    Very helpful!

  70. Erinn C.

    I love using these passages with my students, and they really enjoy it as well. I like that the passages are about topics that are interesting and relevant to the students, like basketball and Pokemon. My only critique is that some of the passages only have about 2 or 3 corrections in the whole paragraph, and some of the answer keys are incorrect. Thanks!

  71. Jennifer P.

    very helpful

  72. HappyJuniorTeacher

    Great resource! I’m not sure if it was the font or something but it appeared blurry to both my students and I. Thank you!

  73. Valerie Mulcahy

    These are so good! Great practice!

  74. Brandi Y.

    This resource was super helpful when homeschooling. It was easy to implement and my son enjoyed the challenge.

    Excellent thank you

  77. Sheila W.

    I love this resource!!!!

  82. September R.

    Easy to implement during writing and easy for students to use!

  83. Cindy D.

    This resource is exactly what I needed for my students. It allowed them to practice their editing skills so that when it comes time to edit their own work, they will be more skilled at it. I like that the paragraphs were short so that it was tedious for the children.

  84. Jaci D.

    My students will love this resource!

    Great Product!

  115. Alicia D.

    This was a great resource!

  116. Leia W.

  119. Jaclyn S.

    Thank You

  120. NIDYA R.

    I have seen lots of growth in my students’ writing, ever since we began editing these weekly paragraphs. They apply new skills learned, and best of all, they go back and carefully edit their work without me having to remind them. Editing has become a habit, since we do it thrice a week.

  121. Beth C.

    Excellent resource! Very thorough and useful!

  122. Kristen B.

    love no-prep!

  133. Julia D.

    Always love your resources!!!! Thank you.

  135. Lisa T.

  142. Janine L.

    Great morning work activity!

  143. Virginia C.

    Great warm-up.

  144. Helen S.

    Wow! This is wonderful! We’ve been editing sentences lately and I was looking to up their game to full paragraphs to help with their essay writing. I love how you format these. If I could ask for more, it would be the Friday review quizzes you suggest.

  145. Jennifer B.

    My class has done 9 weeks of editing practice and each week the answer key has errors in the paragraphs that are not marked. The answer key needs to be edited itself and revised.

  146. Katie B.

    My students struggle with editing their writings and I’m hoping having some guided practice in this area will be a help to make it more useful for them.
