Audience: First grade
Setting: Individual classrooms
Parent volunteers play an important role in this writing workshop. A ratio of one volunteer to every 5 or 6 students is ideal.
Before I ever sit down to write a story, I think deeply about characters, conflict, and resolution. I create a plan of where I want the story to go and what I want to happen. Using this very same process, first graders will develop two distinct characters, a problem, and a resolution. They will write their ideas on their story map and share them with classmates.
I absolutely love this writing workshop. There is nothing like first graders’ joy when they’re writing a story!
Equipment: Schools will provide a copy of the Story Map for each student. I will send them a template of the Story Map well ahead of time so they can make the needed copies. Students need to bring a pencil and the Story Map to the session.
