BEST SELLER!! Does it seem like you give students the same generic compliments on their writing over and over? Do you struggle to find kind, supportive ways to suggest improvements? Have you given up on detailed feedback because it's just too time-consuming to provide?

This document contains hundreds of comment suggestions to help you give meaningful feedback to students on their writing assignments. You can use these comments to help guide your conversations during writing workshop and writing conferences. Or, use them in your written feedback at the top of student work or on sticky notes. These comments can also be used to help describe student writing for portfolio assessments, progress reports, report cards, or in parent conferences.

This 21-page PDF includes one set of the following for narrative writing assignments AND one slightly modified set for expository writing assignments:

• General compliment phrases
• General suggestion phrases
• Specific compliments and suggestions on effort and overall writing progress
• Specific compliments and suggestions for each of the 6 traits of writing: Ideas and Content, Organization, Voice, Word Choice, Sentence Fluency, and Conventions

I used the 6 Traits model because it's a simple way to organize the types of feedback. However, you can use these comments with ANY writing system.
