Launching the Writer’s Workshop: Grades 3-12

Please complete the steps below before you attend this workshop.


Acquire Yellow, Pink, Blue, and Green Sticky Notes

This will be a powerful make-it-take-it workshop, so have plenty of space and highlighters available.

In addition, you will want to have yellow, pink, blue, and green sticky notes available to create your own writing calendar. 1.5″ x 2″ size sticky notes will work the best.
