Best Work Chart

I have seen so many great charts on Pinterest!!!
Here is a chart I made with my class to help them remember Best Work!

 I still have lots of kids that take crayons and markers to write with, so you will see that I have that on the bottom of the chart. 
I don't mind letting kids use markers, but crayons drive me CRAZY.

While writing time, they are not allowed to erase.

I often tell the kids when I see that you are crossing out your work,  it shows me that you are thinking!!
Making a mistake is a huge part of learning, and learning is messy!!

I wrote on little labels and put them around the border. 
Some of the comments say: 

2 colors 
you made lots of mistakes
a little writing
you wrote with markers of crayon
 no name

3 colors
one sentence of writing

5 colors
you wrote with pencil
 you wrote many sentences 
 you double checked your work


  1. My kids use pen when they write. That way they can't erase. It can get kind of messy, but oh well. By the way, I absolutely love that your little ones write so much. I bet your 1st grade teachers love you.

  2. Love this chart! What a great way to visually show the kids what is expected.
