Work on Writing

"The writing component of the Daily 5™ provides additional support children require to become effective writers. Its purpose is to provide daily writing practice."(The Daily 5, p. 107)  

Writing workshop and Work on Writing within Daily 5 are not the same.  During writing workshop we may focus on different writing techniques or teach a specific type of writing students must learn based on our current unit of study.  Children often use Work on Writing time within Daily 5 to continue work they are doing during writing workshop, but not always.  Students thoroughly enjoy the freedom of choice that is part of Daily 5.  It is then that they may do sustained writing of any form they like. 

We invite you to join us as we support our children as they Work on Writing.
