One of the Best Resource Books Ever! Oct 1, 2006
I am entering my tenth year as a teacher. I am currently teaching second grade, but I have also used the lessons with first graders. It could also be used up to fourth or fifth grade. This ranks among my top two resource books (the other being READING WITH MEANING, by Debbie Miller). It is an easy to read book that teaches writing skills in a sequential manner. Lessons are scripted, and teachers can follow them very closely. Each category gives a list of literature that helps teach the skills. These lessons will inspire your students to enjoy the process of writing. I highly recommend this book!! It will be used over and over again in your classroom for years to come!
A Teacher's Best Friend Mar 28, 2001
As an educator of second grade children, I found this book extremely helpful and very practical in the teaching of young writers. The conversation style of the book helps the teacher in lesson planning as well as gives the teacher a clear picture of student understanding. This book helps even the veteran teacher better her writer's workshop activities. The samples of student writing are real and therefore perfect examples of the successes of the program. The step by step procedure to writer's workshop mini lessons helps the educator take the small steps necessary to teach young writers. I found the children's literature book lists (from which the author takes most of her lessons) exceptionally helpful. Overall, this book is easy to use and even easier to follow the suggested program. A terrific resource in the teaching of writing!!
