Writers' Workshop - The children work on the same genre for a period of time. They are given topics to write about and are able to choose writing topics as well. We utilize works of published authors to teach and to inspire our young writers. The units are as follows: narrative, opinion, and informative writing. Throughout the year we will spend time on writing thorough responses to reading.
Responses to Reading
Students will develop short and long responses to their reading when participating in the Expeditionary Reading Units. A rubric will be given to the students so that they may judge their own work.
