This is great. It’s really helpful to see practical exercises. Thanks for putting this together!

Fantastic exercises, thank you for providing these!

Proofreading Worksheets

Related ela standard: l.5.3.

Learn to edit and revise work is as demanding as learning to be good writer, ask an editor of any publication in digital form or print. We often start by reviewing our own work. I would argue it is best to start by editing the work of others. When we reread our own work, we hear what we intended to write, not what is actually written on the page. Peer editing is a great way to promote this task in your classroom. When begin editing work you will learn better uses of grammar and mechanics. We encourage you to start by reading your work out loud. This will help you easily pinpoint errors and mistakes. These worksheets will help you kick off your proofreading career in a positive manner.

Proofreading Worksheets To Print:

Identifying Proofreading Marks - Pencils work great with this one. Match the proofreading marks with their meanings.

Proofreading for Homophones - You can really think of this one as a spelling worksheet . Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings.

Punctuation Matching - Find those marks that match it all up for you. Something is missing within or at the end of each sentence.

Can You Spot the Errors? - There are a couple of loose spaces in there. Read the paragraph and circle the best option for each numbered section.

Always Check Before You Hit Send! - Grandma sent you a letter. She didn't reread her letter before sending, so now you have to decode it to find out what she wrote.

Spell it Right! - Underline all the spelling errors in the paragraph below. Be careful; some words may be spelled correctly, but it could be the wrong spelling for that context.

Fixing Punctuation Errors - This paragraph is littered with punctuation errors. Circle all the punctuation errors in the paragraph.

Proofreading Bios - Each bio has a few grammatical errors. Rewrite the two mini bios so that they are error free.

Finding Mistakes in Each Other's Writing - Write a short story and purposefully make 5 writing mistakes.

Explain the Errors - Circle the error in each sentence. Explain why it is incorrect and how to fix it.

Did June Spell That Correctly? - June wrote a story, but she is a terrible speller. For each numbered word, identify whether or not it is spelled correctly.

Proofreading Partners - Write a short story in the space provided. Switch papers with a partner.

Sentence-by-Sentence Proofreading - Circle the error in each sentence, and rewrite the sentence on the line.

Fill-in-the-Blank Punctuation - This paragraph is missing some of its punctuation! Fill in each blank with the correct punctuation.

Choose the Best Answer - Read each sentence and circle the letter that explains how to fix the error in the sentence.

More Related Worksheet Topics:

Extraneous Details - Learn how to identify them and remove them properly. Some times less is more when it comes to writing.

Paragraph Correction - Placing the sentences in the correct order can really put it together for you. We will look at all the different ways to go about this.

Revising and Editing - This focuses on a mix of your work and the work of others. There is a standard process that you can use.

Revising and Editing Writing - Take your own writing and learn to make it step up. This is often difficult because we read it back to ourselves in the manner we meant to read it in.

Revising, Editing, and Rewriting - This helps put it all together. A nice solid review of all the skills we need to perform this well.

Writing Process - This actually provides you a checklist to follow through the entire process.

How to Proofread?

Proofreading means to read a piece of content to detect for general writing errors, grammatical mistakes, and spelling errors so that you can make sure that the final piece of writing is accurate and correct in all aspects. Proofreading is the last step of the writing process and must be completed carefully. Professional writers proofread their document so that their final document is well written, precise, and easy to read. Students do know how to write an assignment and other literary work but do not know how to proofread it. Proofreading is not an easy process but with a little bit of practice, it becomes easier. Given below are some tips that help one a lot to proofread the document efficiently and easily:

Reading Carefully

Careful reading is a key tool for proofreading. Read every word carefully to make sure that your work is free of errors. Look for spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and punctuation mistakes.

Look for One Problem at One Time

If you are a beginner in proofreading, then proofread for one type of problem at one time. For example, in the first sitting, look for spelling mistakes only and in second sitting, look for grammatical errors. This technique will help to stay focused while proofreading your document.

Use Computer Software

With the advancement of technology, many different forms of proofreading software is available. When you are done proofreading manually, it might be a good idea to use software to double check. I find that most people get in the habit of going over the errors detected by the software and then manually editing it. I find the reverse to be much more rewarding. Use a spelling checker and other grammatical software to make your final piece of writing accurate in all aspects. The best known software at this time is called Grammarly and they have a pretty extensive free app.

Ask Someone to Proofread

Ask an honest friend to reread the content for you. Ask for the pattern that is confusing him or her, spelling mistakes that you may have ignored, and other errors. Ask for his or her advice regarding how can you further improve your document and try to consider his advice.
