Launching Small Moments Unit 1 Writer's workshop Pre-Teaching writing assessment. This powerpoint is to be used to give your students information about how much they are going to love writer's workshop this year. Before you can teach you need to see what they already know as a writer. Have students complete their "cold write" by writing about a small moment in their life. This lesson is the 5th lesson in Unit 1 Writers Workshop Launching Small Moments. This lesson aligns with the Lucy Calkins Teacher's College the Writing and Reading Project 1st Grade writers’ workshop. If you have the Teacher's College Writer's Workshop book 2011-2012, September is where this lesson begins.
I am in the process of creating a PowerPoint for every writing lesson. The lessons are currently only complete though October. By the end of the school year in May we will have every PowerPoint that aligns to each lesson of each unit of study complete and available. My primary goal is to save other teachers the consuming time it takes to make the power points. Our school is currently implementing the Lucy Calkins Writing and Readers Workshop. They are great visual aids for the kiddos!
