Using the checklist below, read back your writing. Have you included everything?
Using a different coloured pen or pencil, edit your work to include anything that is missing. This is what we do in class using our purple pens.
Remember editing is to make your work go from being good to amazing. It doesn’t mean you ‘got things wrong’ but that it helps you remember the details for next time.

Read the text below.
Jesus chose friends to help him. These men were called his disciples and they spent time with him. They listened to him and followed him. They became friends and enjoyed a close friendship. Jesus taught and led His disciples just like a teacher in a school does with the children they work with. Jesus was preparing them for when he would leave Earth and they would continue his work. Jesus commanded his disciples to make more disciples. Jesus wanted them to teach and lead others and tell them about God. He led them so that they could follow his example.
