This checklist is clearly a great starting point for Year Three classes in their writing development. However, it is only a start. Below are a number of items that could be added to the checklist as students progress up the school ladder. These are not in any developmental or time order. Does your first paragraph introduce your story well? Does the last paragraph end the story appropriately? Does each paragraph contain only one point/episode of the story? Does the paragraph expand on that point/episode? Does each paragraph follow the correct sequence of the story? Is the tense of the verbs consistent with the story? Does the story flow from paragraph to paragraph? Have words with emotional emphasis been added to enhance the story? The experienced language teacher might add still more ideas to this \'checklist\'. He/she might develop a checklist that expands, year by year, to parallel the development of their students.
Doing this can bring with it peace of mind that you will not forget a single thing you would like to bring including the \"activities\" you would like to do. While you are doing this for yourself, you don\'t need to forget that others are going out on this camping trip with you. Getting together with them can stave off any chances of forgetting a single thing. Between all of you, there should not be a single thing forgotten. Since camping checklist are pretty easy to make, there is no reason not to make one other than you just do not want to take the time.
