Writing Rubric Labels

Hello!  Just a short post today as at this moment I should be (better be) on a mini vacation with my family.  

The other day I was looking up Vistaprint ideas over at Teaching in Room 6, and I came across her sticky labels that she puts onto a student's final draft for their grade.  I'm sure that you can relate how you get into a rhythm with grading writing - you know what their rubric score is and you just want to record it to move on with life.  (I'm just saying what we all think...)

So because I have 6,000 labels available to me to use this year (my Office Max deal), I decided to create a rubric with reasons as to what they are missing.  Hopefully this will save me some time so I don't have to write the same comments over and over on their papers.  Here is what's on the label, I'm sure you could easily change it up if you need to.  The font is LD Elementary.
Overall Score: 1   2   3   4
*Topic isn't clear
*Needs more details
*Conventions (Capitals, Punctuation, Indents)
Here is the document, hope it helps!
