Let's Write: A Practical Guide to Teaching Writing in the Early Grades.
Areglado, Nancy; Dill, Mary
Developed from actual classroom need and field-tested with primary teachers across the country, this how-to book presents the "nuts and bolts" of how to implement a writing program that turns kids on to writing. Throughout the book, three teachers share vignettes about writing sessions in their classrooms. After an introduction and foreword, chapters in the book are: (1) The Teacher's Role in Developing Writers; (2) The Elements of a Writer's Workshop; (3) Writing with Precision, Writing with a Plan; (4) Encourage Children to Revise, Edit, Confer, and Publish; (5) Helping Writers Grow; (6) The Benefits of Writing across the Curriculum; (7) Assessing Your Students' Writing; and (8) Involving Parents in the Writing Program. Contains a 77-item bibliography of children's books and professional books about writing; a 19-item annotated list of children's books; assessment forms, criteria charts for writing; steps of the writing workshop; revision and editing checklists; author's planning pages; and blank writing awards.
