"This saved my bacon! I had always taught intermediate grades and was clueless about teaching primary writing when I changed grade levels. The first year I learned right along with kids, I knew to do it again the second year. I love this product. Thank You." - Diana H.

Many teachers tell me they don't have the resources, support, time, or curriculum they need to teach writing workshop effectively.

They also tell me it is hard to get their young students organized and writing independently.

If you can relate to any of this, you are not alone, and this writing workshop unit is for you!

Whether you teach your students virtually, face-to-face, or a hybrid of both, I developed this unit to give you the confidence and support you need to launch your writing workshop.
