Workshops for Teachers!


1 Day "Wee Can Write" Workshop
(PreK-Kindergarten-Grade2)
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
(Kindergarten- Grade2)
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.
 
"101 Mini-Lessons to Strengthen Your PreSchool-Kindergarten Program"
Need a jump start for your classroom?  This workshop day is packed with easy to do activities with your youngest learners.  From beginning the day with a morning message, through creative play in literacy centers, moving through the curriculum and meeting standards and benchmarks, and finally ending with activies that pull the day together, this workshop is truly NON-STOP!  Teachers will walk out with a handbook that is full of creative and ready to use activies for their early primary classroom.  This is a workshop that truly is a "do not miss!
