I made this brochure to help parents understand how they can support their young writer, and the writing workshop, at home. This brochure focuses on narrative writing, and it includes a brief and simplified explanation on helping the writer, along with questions that parents can ask to scaffold for students, and with some phrases that the student may respond with. It also includes some follow up questions to help the writer move along.
I use the Lucy Calkins Units of Study, along with other resources in my writing workshop, therefore, I made this brochure to help parents support it at home, using language/strategies that will be familiar to students.
I hope you and your student's parents find it helpful.
