Writer’s Workshop: In Writer’s Workshop, students revised and edited their nonfiction pieces. Later in the week, students started to publish their nonfiction pieces. Students have been working really hard to make sure their writing has an interesting and exciting beginning, contains facts about the topic, includes keywords, and has a concluding sentence or section.
