Wondrous Writers in 1st and 2nd Grade

Eileen Hardin, Room 1 K/1/2 Teacher
The Room One Wondrous Writers are ending their narrative writing unit. They have studied examples of writers of good literature and have become better writers by emulating them. They have learned to plan a story, follow story structure (characters, setting, events, problem/wish, and solution), to use vivid words for description, to develop interesting characters, and to revise and edit. They follow the Writing Workshop method where short mini-lessons are taught by the teacher and a demonstration is given; the students then apply the skill. Room One is just full of storytellers.
