Five days into the school year and we have Kindergartener students participating in writing workshop!!! In an effort to promote independence and choice, students begin by gathering at the carpet for a mini-lesson on writing. Next they think of a story they’d like to write and they tell that story to a friend. They are learning that writing is a story that is written down and must be spoken first. Next the students move to their seats and participate in the, “Quiet Five” – five minutes of absolute quitet where students begin writing their stories. The lesson concludes with these young writers sharing their ideas from the “Author’s Chair.” We want our students to LOVE!!
