Product Description

By request, I have created Common Core Writing Rubrics based specifically on the language used in the Common Core Standards to assess the students in their writing. I have included a rubric for each grade level (Grades 1-4) in each of the 3 types of Common Core Writing: Opinion, Informative/Explanatory, and Narrative Writing. You can use this as a self-assessment for the students or as a teacher assessment guide. This is the perfect companion to my Common Core Writing Bundles #1 and #2. They can be found at the links below:

Common Core Writing Bundle #1: August - December

Common Core Writing Bundle #2: January - July

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, I will not be taking any custom requests to edit or change this file for specific needs.
