Writer's Workshop is picking up speed in our Kindergarten room. Students are writing teaching books. This paper is teaching how to have a birthday party. Children are learning how to add details to their pictures and labeling beginning sounds to their pictures. It's all the little lessons behind these lessons that make our writers independent learners. They now know where to get their markers, paper, sharpened pencils and how to file their work in their folders when they are finished. All of these little "tuck in" lessons are what makes Writer's Workshop a time when students know what to do, what is expected and how to carry on confidently.
