I think I’m going to have my students sign-up to use this for one week at a time since there are seven activities. Though it’ll take two weeks to complete all of the activities in a meaningful way since they’re pretty elaborate. Here are the titles of the activities I put inside of the station. I’m putting the mentor poem(s) the children will examine, before writing their own poem, in parenthesis after each station name.

I am a literacy consultant who focuses on writing workshop. I've been working with K-6 teachers and students since 2009. Prior to that, I was a fourth and fifth-grade teacher in New York City and Rhode Island.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband and children. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, doing Pilates, cooking, baking, making ice cream, and reading novels.
