This product is designed to help teachers and students start Writer's Notebooks for Writer's Workshop. There are two copies printed on this document, so that you can cut them and have kids glue them into their Writer's Notebook. The document outlines why writer's keep a Writer's Notebook, the purpose for doing it, and outlines the procedures for teacher collection of student notebooks. (I collect 4-5 notebooks a night to read and comment on...that way I won't get swamped reading 24 in one night!) This document gets referred to by my students ALL THE TIME! Hopefully it will be a good jumping off point for you to start Writer's Notebooks with your class!
