Spring Break Writer’s Workshop

It has been so much fun to see some of my 2nd grader writer friends make progress! I have watched them struggle to write a sentence, then stretch to make it a paragraph! Now they are writing whole pages, and filling the back side as well. Some are writing “Small Moments”, a la Lucy McCormick Calkins. Some are writing fiction! Now I am ready to begin my own Children’s Writing Workshop, Berkeley Bridge Montessori Plus, blending Common Core Standards with Montessori philosophy!

Opening Date: Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 4:00-5:30 p.m. for Grades K through 2nd/ Thursday April 16th 4-5:30 p.m. 3-5th grades
