Okay, I'm going a little out of my grade level for this one, but this website has some truly great resources for Reader's Workshop that I think can be easily adapted for younger groups or used for my "bigger kid" teacher friends. Check out http://hill.troy.k12.mi.us/staff/bnewingham/myweb3
for posters, organization and management ideas, assessment forms and all sorts of information that makes Reader's Workshop not so overwhelming! I came away from this site with the thought that maybe I CAN do Reader's Workshop with itty-bitties!
Here's a neat website to check out to encourage your kiddos to complete the Writing Process. What a great keepsake! http://www.studentpublishing.com/ Oh, and did I mention? FREE! :)
