Before They Turn It In, Check It Off!

Hi friends!

I hope you’re having a lovely week. Our weather’s been super wacky (sun, rain, sun, rain all within an hour or two) but besides that, I’m just peachy. 🙂

How often do your students turn in work with missing names, date, parts not complete, etc, etc?

I know my first graders were notorious for this (especially the missing name part… ugh!). Well, at the beginning of last year, I had an idea. What if each of my kiddo’s had a little check list right on their desk so they would remember to check off to make sure they’ve done everything before they turned in their work? Wouldn’t that just be the best thing ever?

Well, my Turn It In Checklists were born.

Turn It In Checklists

These checklists come in 12 make that 13 fun themes, and have just been updated.

From jungle to bees to robots to the newly added Hollywood theme. 🙂

13 Awesome Themes!

Each theme also comes in two versions: for upper and lower elementary.

Here is one for younger students that just uses a simple word. This one is a fun and silly fruit theme. All of them come in a 1/2 page size and a mini size. 🙂

Orange You Going to Check Your Work?

And here’s one for upper elementary students. This one uses complete sentences.

Upper El Check List

You can print out the version and size you like the best, laminate it, and then attach it to your students’ desk, folder, or notebook. Before they turn in their work, they can check to make sure they’ve complete every part.

You could even let your students pick which fun checklist they’d like so that it’s a little more personal. That’s my plan this year. I’m going to print out all of the upper elementary ones and let my kiddos pick the one they like the best.

Here’s the best part. I’m putting these checklists on sale from now until Friday for only $3!

Just click any of the picture above to purchase them at my TpT shop.

Don’t worry about whether or not your students have complete every part of an assignment again, just use my Turn It In Checklists!

I’d love to hear what you think, leave a comment below. 🙂

Until next time,

    These are super cute, and the plays on words will tickle their funny bones. Great idea.
