Writing is the main focus in most schools.  Writing Workshopbreaks writing down into each style – narrative, persuasive, expository, and poetry writing.   Each style of writing provides examples, graphic organizers, a rubric, and a lesson plan.

In the beginning of the book it provides bulletin board suggestions, writing strategies, student writing checklists, websites, home-school activities, and much more.

I’m very excited to use the poetry section of this book as that is what my next writing will be with my grade 5s.  Wish me luck with some wonderful poems!
