Hey y’all! I recently released Unit 1 in my writer’s workshop plans- Tales of a First Grade Writer. This video is a glimpse of how we’re getting prepared in the beginning for a successful year of writing in first grade. A few years back, I was feeling a little uncomfortable with my writer’s workshop. I wasn’t really sure if what I was doing was reaching my kids. I started reading up on writer’s workshop and what it looks like to truly write everyday with first graders. I felt like my kids were just writing with no direction and like I was on a deserted island with no help!!! Unit 1 in Tales of a First Grade Writer is all about setting up the writer’s notebook and all the components that lead to successful writing.
