Writer's Workshop: Kindergarten

Digging in and getting our hands dirty!

Food for Thought!

"There is perhaps no year more crucial than Kindergarten. What students learn this first year provides the building blocks not just for each subsequent year's instruction and learning, but more importantly, for children's experience of the written word and their identities as people who write. In many cases, it will be you who introduce the kids to the world of written language." - Lucy Calkins
