Writer's Workshop for K-2
Read Like a Writer
APPRECIATE THEIR APPROXIMATIONS!
Learning Something NEW - TURN & TALK
Talk to someone near you about how that felt, and who taught you.
Ever gone to "Painting with a Twist"?
The artist takes you step by step through the painting. She appreciates your approximations and gives you some one-on-one if you need it. She may have to give you a nudge, but she'll never push you to make your painting exactly like hers.
THEY NEED A NUDGE NOT A PUSH!
Gather your stacks!

Read aloud a mentor text - Mini-lesson - Notice the sensory details used by the author.
Model - This is how I could write like that.
Guided practice - What do you think?
Independent practice - Can you write like that?
