Second Grade Writing

Writing Workshop
The goals of Writer's Workshop are:

  • To provide opportunities for children to learn and practice writing through different genres and become proficient writers.

  • Interactive Writing takes place when teacher and student "share the pen" and collectively write a message or record information.

  • Writing for different purposes (personal narrative, letter writing, list writing, etc.)

  • Writer's Workshop time includes a focused mini-lesson, teacher conferences, the editing and publishing process.

  • During Writer's Workshop we are guiding children to write with the reader in mind. Writing informs the teacher of spelling patterns the class or individual students need to work on. It gives the teacher a window for word choices for word study.
