• ·         Our writing program is done in a workshop format. The students will participate in a daily mini-lesson where I model a skill/strategy. Then the students will write in an uninterrupted writing time where they are able to practice the skill/strategy.  Finally, we will have a sharing time where the students get to share their writing.  We will focus on the major genres of writing—narrative, informative, persuasive, and functional, as well as grammar.
