Writing Mini-Lesson

As I return back to work on Monday, we will be continuing with our Writer's Workshop. 

I just love Lucy Calkins!   I will be reminding the students about the difference between A Watermelon Idea and a Seed Idea!  I want the students to share one small moment during their Winter Break.  I have made this small poster as a reminder.               

Watermelon Topics/ Seed Ideas Poster

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
