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
Also on these boards
I haven't spent a lot of time on this blog yet, but there are already two things I love about it: its name "No Time for Flash Cards" and the fact that part of the letter "M" unit includes making a Matisse collage.
I love this entry about creating writer's workshop anchor charts. She also talks about reading Click Clack Moo to talk about why we write. I need to do this lesson in the first few weeks of school!
Writer's Workshop Conference I love this! Have an order (abc last name?) & plan/guide (this sheet... Keep all students' sheets for the year in a teacher's Wr. Workshop notebook?)- conferencing will not only happen when a kid is almost ready to publish & turn into a "teacher fix this for me" session!!!
