The first session of the day Encouraging Little Ones to Write: Center Projects that Motivate and Inspire! In this session I share lots of fun crafty type projects that will get your kids writing. I also share some easy no prep writing centers. I love this idea we did when we were doing the book “I Know an Old Lady”. Writing clues is a great way to work on descriptive language.
The second session Reader’s Workshop: A Celebration of Independence. Getting things started are often the hardest part. Like what do you do when they first come to school in the fall? In this session we talk about just that! One idea is a series of mini lessons that shows the children that everybody can read! This anchor chart is used over 3 different lessons!
Here are the units I used to help plan this session!

And the last session for day Start off on the Right Foot: The First 30 Days. In this session we are sharing ideas for the beginning of the year. Here is one idea we share: Take pictures of all of your kids with their family at Open House or Meet and Greet. Then, get cheap frames from the Dollar Store. Display the photos on a shelf for everyone to see! Parents love it! They feel like a part of the class, and they are very impressed!
