Making Lists for Writer's Workshop
I'm planning on starting Writer's Workshop with my kindergarten students on Tuesday. Here are my lesson plans for the first 3 days:
Day 1: Discuss the purpose of writing and the different types of writing.
Answer these questions: Why do writers write? What do writers write?
Day 2: Talk about making illustrations and labeling pictures.
Activity- Draw an illustration about Christmas and label it.
Day 3: Talk about writing lists.
Answer these questions: Why do people make lists? What do people put on lists?
Activity- Make lists about farm animals, wild animals, pets, or insects.
I was looking on Mrs. Bremer's kindergarten website http://mrsbremersk.blogspot.com/
and she had some great ideas about making lists in kindergarten. So, I made a few of my own word cards and lists to go along with learning about insects and animals.
