This Writing Conference Checklist aligns with the Lucy Calkins Units of Study for Kindergarten Narrative Wrting. It works with both Launching the Writer's Workshop and Writing for Readers. I always find it difficult to have a really focused writing conference with a child while noting exactly what occurred during the conference. This sheet makes it easier to leave tracks of what was noticed, what was worked on, what the child was doing independently and goals that were set for the future. I find that I can have many more conferences than I used to because I am not writing so much. I color code mine by placing either a red, orange, yellow, green or blue dot on the upper right hand corner. I choose a different color each day to check in with to be sure that I am seeing all children throughout the week. I hope you find this sheet useful! Enjoy and keep Writing!!
