    I am a new K teacher and I was wondering, when do you introduce writers workshop? I asked another teacher and she said Dec. That seems so late. I would also like to hear about the first couple lessons.

    I am starting tomorrow! It will be our 3rd week of school. I am introducing picture drawing as a form of writing first. After a few days, I will move into simple sentence writing using inventive spelling. Of course most of the kid's writing won't look like sentences, but that's OK. Its important to start now in order to get great results by spring.

    We started talking about it the first day of school and they wrote their first "story" that Friday. We talked about oral storytelling, using a picture to tell words and simple labels (me was a sight word and many knew m for mom/d for dad). The book cza linked for k is great!
