We will call our daily writing class, "Writing Workshop." During this Writing Workshop time, we will:
  • write every day in our writing workshop notebooks (ink pens are allowed)
  • learn about why writers write
  • listen to others share their writing (including the teacher)
  • write about what matters to us
  • learn how to improve our writing by examining authors' published works
  • learn how to write personal narratives, realistic fiction, essays and poetry
  • improve spelling and vocabulary using our personal word wall
  • publish our work for others to read

Our Writing Workshop program is based on the work of Lucy Calkins. Click here for details about the program.
