One of the best sites I have seen for helping set up Writer's Workshop. She has amazing ideas for genre units (and celebrations)! Looks like she uses Caulkins... Writers Notebook, Helpful Sets, Languages Art, Workshop Ideas, Writing Ideas, Writers Workshop, Genre United, Amazing Ideas, 2Nd Grade

Nice visual writing accommodation for kids who need support for basic conventions. Tape it to the desk.
Teachers LOVE my writing prompt sets--easy to use, easy to score, easy to help make differentiation easier! They are a great way to track writing data on kids in a MEANINGFUL and helpful way. This is a bundled set of prompts that can be used throughout the year--a spring/summer set, a fall/back to school set, and a winter set. Try it! You will know your students so much better as writers! Genre sets also available. $8
