Kid Writing in the 21st Century may be the most comprehensive staff development book ever written to guide kindergarten and Grade 1 teachers in the specifics of how to teach writing. Each of the authors brings to bear over thirty years of research and classroom experience giving you strategies that are “evidence based” but also “proven in practice.”
Kid Writing enhances and extends the Lucy Calkins Units of Study for writing in K-1 and is essential for any teacher who is not confident about how to teach beginners to write.
The popular Strategy Glossary demonstrates the depth and practical application that connects research to practice. This is a book you will keep on your desktop for a lifetime.
Mariah's June Writing: Tuesday, my tooth was wiggling. When it was in my mouth it bled. When it fell out, it stopped bleeding. My mom gently pulled it out with a paper towel and I was happy that it fell out!
These photos show Mariah's progress during her Kindergarten year. Every day is a celebration in Kid Writing Classrooms!
