Writing Workshop - Help from Home {Freebie}

If your Writing Workshop is anything like mine, your little ones need a LOT of assistance in becoming independent writers.  And let's face it, as teachers, we'll take as much help as we can to get them to the land of independence!

At the beginning of the school year, I send home this form for parents to fill out.  It asks for information that I might not yet know about my firsties.  Once returned, it helps them to spell names in their writing and gives them a few ideas of things they've done with their families to help them get started.

Once my families returned the form (and ALL of my families returned them - wahoo!) I put them in page protectors and then into their writing folders.  My kids can refer this helper all year long!  When they get stuck in writing, I can guide them to this page and we can talk about what they might choose to write about.

As a bonus, reading these helps me to get to know my kiddos.  Win-win!
