A Week of Editing and Revising

This week, Doves and Bullfinches have been practicing editing and revising some of their old work to make it even better.

Over the year, we've been writing lots of stories, letters and other pieces of work. But as we've improved over the year, we decided to take a look back at some of our older writing to see if we could improve it.

So, we first decided to take a good look at our old stories and decide what we were going to do with them. Would we edit them, improve them, or change them? Once we decided what we wanted to do with our stories, we wrote a second draft onto a separate piece of paper.

Once we had our second draft finished, we looked at the second draft with a partner. Together, we read through it and decided what changes we needed to make. We looked for spelling errors, punctuation that was needed and to up-level or improve any words that we had. Editing with a partner took a long time because each pairing had to look at one piece together and talk about the changes they wanted to make.

Once the peer-editing was finished, we transitioned over to our Writing Journals to write our final good copy. We took our time to ensure that our best writing and best possible version of our story was in these books.
