Writer's Workshop Anchor Charts

In our Writer's Workshop today, we talked about how words were so important and how to use strong words in our writing. We used Max's Words as our mentor text--they loved it!

Max decides that he wants to collect words, and he then turns them into a story. This led into our discussion of strong words.

It took them a little time to brainstorm STRONG words, but once they got on a roll, I couldn't stop them! They kept thinking of them throughout the day! I love to see them get excited about writing!

This is where I post our Writer's Workshop anchor charts--on our chalkboard. I never actually write on it, so it has turned into another wall! You can see more about our anchor charts here.

We have not been doing Writer's Workshop in our room that long, but I can definitely see growth in my students' writing. They are also in love with writing! It is definitely their favorite time of our day. 

What does writing look like in your room?
