Writing is not only a way to becoming a fluent reader, but it also reveals the storyteller, the communicator, and the reporter in us all. Elementary students love a good story. They like to write a good story too. Join me as an active participant discover the writer in us so we can inspire the writer in our students.
This workshop will:
  • Examine parts of a weekly writing session or workshop in the classroom.
  • Offer a list of creative and practical ideas to write about and how to differentiate among levels of writers
  • Design a writer’s workshop for your class
  • Experience the writer’s workshop with an assignment in real time
