This powerpoint is the first of 15 in the Lucy Calkins Teachers College unit of study for 2nd grade. This lesson and the others to follow are from the second grade curricular calendar for Writer's Workshop. Second grade launches writing workshop with a nonfiction unit of study. This lesson revs up writers by showing all that 2nd grade writers know (Grown Up Writers) and begins to set routines and expectations for the writer's workshop. Please look for the additional powerpoints for the unit. This first one is basic as it is just the intro to get students back in the groove of writing. The powerpoints to follow all build on each other as the minilessons grow deeper each time with content. This presentation submitted by Candice Settlemoir, Instructional Coach.
