Another great pack providing just what I was looking for ! Trying to get my students to edit their work is a challenge but the scaffolding used in these resources will be really helpful and they are presented in such an appealing format.

So Useful!!

Thank you to the team at Teaching Packs. The quality of your resources is first class and so well thought out. I work with a variety of ages in a Support for Learning Capacity. This requires unpacking basic skills to help them with the demands of assessments. This Editing pack is just a fantastic example of this!
