The Kindergarten students are learning that during Writers' Workshop; sharing with a partner is an important part of the writing process. They learn how to talk with a partner to help revise their stories.
Use this growing Writing Checklist to create indepedent writers during Writing Workshop! Begin with just one item on the checklist, and use the corresponding paper with that same checklist item at the top. Continue to add items and change papers, as the year progresses!

Pull down and snip off the desired length and never worry that your ball of string will roll away across the floor dragging its tail behind it!
