Our classrooms are writing communities. In grades K- 3 we devote a special one-hour block of time dedicated to Writers' Workshop.
Here are some of the processes you will see in all Writers' Workshop classrooms:
- Children write often and for extended periods of time in writers’ notebooks. They write about meaningful, self-selected topics.
- Children write personal narratives, poetry, non- fiction, how to books, etc
Children use mentor texts and study authors’ craft to improve their writing.
- Teachers confer with students to help them edit and make revisions in their pieces.
- Students publish their work and celebrate their writing accomplishments on a regular basis.
