I LOVE Writer’s Workshop! It is a simple, consistent and effective way to enhance my kiddos writing in grades K-6. Here is the plan.
DAY 1: Students will use a graphic organizer to brainstorm a given topic. I have included several generic graphic organizers to choose from.
DAY 2: Students will prewrite a story using information from their graphic organizers. I typically have them write this on paper from a spiral notebook.
DAY 3: Students will revise their writing. (with teacher or peer assistance)
DAY 4: Students will edit their writing. (with teacher or peer assistance)
DAY 5: This is my FAVORITE day! Students publish their writing and get to sit in the author chair to read their story to the class. I have included 3 versions of lined paper for their published writing
