Primary Reading and Writing Rubrics FreebieRebrics! Do you need rubrics? They are wonderful for being observed by the principal or peer coach to help answer the question, “How will you evaluate this lesson?” Wait a minute, evaluate in a 45-minute lesson? Yes, with a quick rubric. Later, the teacher fills out his or her version of the assessment to discuss both the student and teacher versions in a reading or writing workshop conference.

This post has a link to a primary reading and writing rubrics freebie.

Free Editable Generic Primary

The version in our free eMembers area has blue boxes on the PDF in which teachers can write their own criteria or standards. If nothing is typed in the blue boxes, nothing will print. Perhaps there are cases where differentiation is useful, and so different versions of the rubrics might be prepared for a single topic or lesson. It is free to sign up by selecting the free radio button on the page, thus making the payment options disappear. There is a student page as well as a teacher page for each design.


The editable version is in our free eMember area.
