Your child’s opinion pieces and informational writing will be more organized and thorough. With this blossoming of writing prowess, your child will be using more sophisticated language, improved grammar, and overall heightened mastery of the form from beginning to end."- Jessica Kelmon
In River Edge, we use the Writer's Workshop model. Similar to Reader's Workshop, the teacher models a lesson for students and they try it on their own. In Writer's Workshop, students are encouraged to talk to each other to discuss the teacher's lesson and the ways in which they will be able to use the lesson's skill or strategy in their own writing. Types of Writing we will do this year include:
