Lucy Calkins Series: Units of Study for Primary Writing: A Yearlong Curriculum
 
Students in first grade become authors on their writing journey! A mini-lesson begins each writing workshop where the teacher models the writing process.  Students work independently for 15-30 minutes. The teacher confers with individual students and small groups on content, writing skills and word wall application.
 
Students are highlighted as the "Star Writer" to showcase their writing pieces and application of mini-lessons!
 
Each unit of study concludes with a writing celebration where students showcase their work for a variety of invited guests!
 
As an end of year keepsake, each child will have a binder with their pieces from the entire year.
