    Default What is 4-point check?

    When doing the PAL Writing program with my first and second graders, it keeps referring to doing the 4-point check. What exactly is that? I cannot find it anywhere in the teacher's manual. Is is used when writing sentences.
    I'd appreciate any help.

    Are you referring to IEW's PAL? This is a forum for questions regarding T4L, but I will give it a shot. The 4-point check poster is located on page 5 of the Primary Arts of Language: Writing, Part III Student Book.

    It says:
    4-Point Check
    1. Capitals
    2. Spacing
    3. Punctuation .?!
    4. Does it make sense?

    FWIW, I found this by googling:
    "PAL writing" 4-point check

    The information was in a sample at Rainbow Resource.

    Thanks Mandy. I was wondering if we had added somethig since my son was in second grade. It does sound like a good way to evaluate your sentence structure.
