Helping Children Become Readers Through Writing
A Guide to Writing Workshop in Kindergarten
Arlene C. Schulze
Keeping in mind the many demands on kindergarten teachers’ time, Arlene C. Schulze outlines current research and best classroom practices for implementing writing workshop in your classroom. Chapters are rich with student writing samples and offer a daily kindergarten schedule, a description of the stages of kindergartners’ written language development, outlines and lesson plans, writing workshop minilessons, and assessment tools.
Plus, appendixes offer a wealth of information to supplement your instruction, such as phonemic awareness activities, booklists, word lists, sample letters, and reproducible forms.
Although this book focuses primarily on kindergarten students, the ideas and advice it contains are also appropriate for those working with preschoolers and first and second graders.
