Rocket Writes a Story by Tad Hills: MUST HAVE for writing workshop at the beginning of the year... great story (not so much for "craft," but for helping students gain a writing identity.) Rocket learns about the reading-writing connection, collecting words, choosing important topics to write about, and more.
I really like this set up for a writing center. Ideas include: cutting practice, labeled plastic drawers for supplies, ice cube trays for alpha stamps, dry erase boards, alpha punches, clip boards, stapler, and more. How to set up a writing center in preschool or kindergarten via www.pre-kpages.com
