Writer's Workshop: Writing Off an Object or Memory

26 April 2011
I am super proud and excited because one of my students, Paige,  won first place in the Suffolk County Writing Contest for first grade.  For those of you who don't know Long Island, Suffolk County is huge!  I am so proud of her.  Paige will read her winning prose at a special dinner event in June!  I am invited along with my principal and her parents.

   

The winning prose was written after a Writer's Workshop lesson on Writing Off an Object or Memory.  I started the lesson by reading Something Beautiful by Sharon Dennis Wyeth.  I have uploaded the lesson to Google docs.  Click {here} to download it.  This lesson has just been added to my Writer's Workshop Resources packet, which has been updated and is available on Tpt.
