I've started easing my students into Writer's Workshop by having them respond to writing prompts through illustrations. Today, I took them a step farther and discussed labels. Students helped me fill out this chart (pinterest inspired):
From there, students learned the 5 things you need to become a good writer. A brain to think of good stories with, a smile to write happily, hands to journal, and a pencil and paper to record. Students labeled the items they needed on this handout.
