How do you teach writer's workshop in your first and second grade classroom? This post explains how to get your writer's to expand their learning through fun activities and lessons that even have them writing chapter books by the end! So many great ideas!
Working wall - The wall should exemplify the writing process from the 'reading as a writer' stage to the 'nearly finished' stage. Final presentations can be displayed in public areas of the school or in anthologies, portfolios or folders. The wall represents a workshop approach to writing - where the 'tools of the trade' are accessible, and added to, as the process develops. It is a good idea to allow children to make contributions to the wall; post-it notes are an ideal resource for this.
