iPad Book Projects for Young Learners
Writer's Workshop is commonplace in many elementary ELAR classrooms, but the quality of the students writing improves when they have a wider audience. Even our youngest learners can learn to share, post and publish their writing. We'll show you some safe and student friendly digital tools for use by you and your students to enhance the writing experience for everyone.
APPRECIATE THEIR APPROXIMATIONS!
THEY NEED A NUDGE NOT A PUSH!

Differentiation is built in to Writer's Workshop
Students can go at their own pace as they write what they choose. Instruction is personalized based on the students' needs.
TURN & TALK

Time for Revision
Authors always read what they wrote to decide if they can make it better. Making it better is revision.
Do you need to change anything in your book to make it better?
Editing Comes Next
Author's make sure that they have capital letters and punctuation done correctly. Editing is when we clean it up to be sure it looks right.
SHARING IS SUPER IMPORTANT!
Authors usually write their books for readers. Is your book ready to share?
