Kindergarten is different and special for many reasons but especially because it’s many children's first experience with intentional writing instruction. Using Already Ready by Katie Wood Ray and Talking, Drawing, Writing by Martha Horn. We'll take a fresh look at the writing workshop just for the kinder student. Structure, environment, mini lessons, conferences, management, stamina,will be the pieces of study to help teachers keep our youngest writers engaged. You'll walk away prepared and confident to implement a writers workshop from day one.
