How To Support Struggling  Writers in K-2

In this workshop, you'll learn how to help K-2 students:

Gain confidence to spell words on their own
Come up with topic ideas independently
Work independently during writing time
ENJOY drawing and writing to share their ideas!

Writing (and drawing) should be FUN, especially in the primary grades!

But writing can also be - for many students - the most challenging task in the entire school day! Some children are intimidated by the thought of writing or spelling words on their own. They're missing out on the academic AND social-emotional benefits of writing, including reading growth! And honestly, you might not enjoy teaching writing, either. And that's totally understandable, because who wants to see their kiddos struggling?!

Many teachers have also said that writing was the most difficult subject to teach during the pandemic. If you've taught virtually, you probably saw that some students adapted easily, while others struggled without your direct support. So do you know how you'll adjust your teaching to support students who may have some learning gaps? And how you'll continue to meet the needs of higher-level students?

This free workshop will help you and your students get back on track! By the end of the workshop, you'll feel empowered to support all your students with writing - including English Language Learners and students with special needs. You'll be ready to implement lots of simple strategies and make writing FUN again!

Can't wait to see you in the workshop!
