Writing Tips Linky
But teaching writing is another matter. I KNOW how the writer's workshop should look. I UNDERSTAND about mini lessons and conferences. I BELIEVE that young students are writers and have important messages to share. I just can't seem to make it happen effectively in my classroom!
So this summer I would like to explore resources that might help me become a better writing teacher. I will be attending a district sponsored writing academy in July, and we use Lucy Calkins' Units of Study, but I feel like I need more. So I have created my very first "linky party." Please link up and share your best writing tips and strategies. Are there professional books you would recommend? Do you have a great writing resource on TPT or Teacher's Notebook or have you discovered a great product? If you do the Daily Five, what do your kids do during Work on Writing? What technology tools do you use? If you don't have a blog to link, please share your ideas in the comments section!
