Writing workshop is composed of mini-lessons, interactive writing, teacher modeling, guided practice, independent practice, and sharing.
During mini-lessons I model a great deal of writing. The students see me “talk” through my difficulties in writing. The students will learn a variety of genres of writing.
Second Grade Writing units are changing this year. Check back for an update on what they will be!
We will learn to read books through the eyes of an author. We will use published authors as mentors. We will study what other authors do in their writing to help us become better writers.
Students will participate in “on demand” writing. On demand writing is in response to a question or a prompt and is commonly used on the MEAP and the MME.
