Lakewood City Schools adopted Columbia Writing program. This is our fourth year and it was very successful the last three years. The students are engaged in writer's workshop daily for 40 minutes, and writing so much more! It encourages spelling, creativity, and a lot of detail in your child's writing. We will focus on Narrative, Informational, Opinion, and Poetry writing. I will be conferencing weekly with your child about his her writing. This quarter is Narrative writing, which is about themselves, and the students love that! The students are writing informational books on topics that they are experts. They will be writing multiple books with many chapters. This will lead into writing gripping fictional stories.
