1 Day "Wee Can Write" Workshop
In this full day workshop the 6+1 Traits Writing Model and teaching ideas will be presented using familiar literature
titles that your youngest students love. You will practice using the traits through oral language, reading, listening
and writing activities that will leave you comfortable using the writing traits, and increase the ability of your students
to communicate. The vocabulary of the traits will be an added focus. These are the common words that are used
to talk to your students about writing each day and will provide them with a solid foundation for writing throughout their
school lives. You will learn a wealth of activities using award-winning literature titles found in your library or personal
bookshelf collection that are flexible, creative, and take no more than three to five minutes to prepare. Learn about
the traits today...use them tomorrow!
2 Day Wee Can Write Workshop
Learning about the fundamentals of writing, criteria of writing, the strategies of writing and using rubrics...sounds
like a tall order? Link the 6+1 Writing Strategies with writing practice, superb literature titles, and seamlessly cross
the curriculum with writing. Writing throughout the day, in all subject areas, using award winning titles suggested
by teachers for teachers makes this workshop an amazing two days! Teachers will leave with a clear understanding of
each trait after practicing and writing with the traits themselves. The handbook they receive at the training will arm
them with resources and ideas to use throughout the school year in their classrooms.
