Writing Workshop is the centerpiece of my classroom. Everything
the students work for revolves around this program. From the
first days of school, the students will study the four sentence
structures in order to understand sentence variety in writing.
The students will review the eight parts of speech in order to
learn to use the parts of speech correctly and purposefully. Once
sentence structure and the eight parts of speech are taught, the
students will begin instruction with writing practices and procedures
in order to begin workshop. Writing Workshop is an individualized
program that provides support to each student.
