Writing Workshop in 1st Grade

Writing Workshop is a model for writing instruction and practice in the classroom. During the workshop time, students learn to write through varied activities. Writing Workshop exposes First grade students to the organization and thought required to create a story, write about a favorite topic, or share information and opinions. First graders in Room 109 are learning how to independently plan and write an opinion piece of writing. They are developing an understanding of how to form strong opinions, how to structure an argument with a main idea and details, and how to express their personal thought and ideas.
