For the past several months we've been working on learning to plan, write and add details to stories during Writers Workshop time. We read lots of books to see how authors craft their stories, with a particular focus on wordless picture books, since pictures tell a story all on their own, and are often the first and most accessible way that kindergarteners can read and write (since they're still learning letters and sounds). We did a drawing journal for several weeks, and then moved on to writing our own stories. Eventually we chose one favorite to publish, which meant editing it with an editing checklist, coloring the pictures, and making a cover page. Below are pictures of the writers and their writing!
