    I am going to implement a writer's workshop into my classroom. Does anyone know of a good teacher resource book or website that could help me get started?

    I bought a book from scholastic that was wonderful!! It is called writers workshop mini lessons I believe. Also I use a book that is called Primary Writers. I bought it off of a website called QEP...they have been life savers for me.

    Lucy Calkins has a series called "A Writer's Workshop". There are also several books by Ralph Fletcher you may find useful!

    For the early grades there is nothing as wonderful as Units of Study in a Primary Classreom by Lucy Calkins. It is a comprehensive program that will move your children along as writers. I have been doing it for 3 years now.

    Ralph Fletcher's work is great. I have his (and his wife's) books called Craft Lessons and Nonfiction Craft Lessons. They are good to use with Writer's Workshop and are user-friendly.

    Writers Worskhop resources

    HI!
    I have been teaching for 16 years (first grade) and the best writing workshop resource book that I have ever found is Jim Henry, Writing Journals! It is a great resource and has pictures and the author is a first grade teacher that makes writing fun and full of adventure!
    Take a look at it! It is great!
