Our district is making big changes in the way that we teach writing. We are going back to a true workshop model based on Lucy Calkins. Our system implemented the Common Core last year and has made writing a high priority.
I found a great resource to support my writing lessons on Amazon. (A recommendation from my friend Christine who is a third grade teacher.) They have specific grade level books for grades K through 6.
This book has lessons for setting up workshop, conference forms, rubrics, 30 lessons for the six traits of writing with printables, mentor text lists and MUCH More!!!! You will not be disappointed.

Here is a video on how to make multi-pocket folders for writing workshop. I am going to do this for next year.
