I have been trying to do writers workshop in my 1st grade classroom. I have been reading more about it this summer. I understand the format mini lesson independent writing conferences sharing I just have a hard time with the kids being all over the place! Has anyone else found this to be a problem? I also have a hard time with conferences. The same kids NEED me every single day. I could do a sign up sheet but didn;t last year. I was just wondering if other teachers had some of the same problems and maybe a solution.
