Description: [...] they engage in a mini-lesson (brief lessons about what writers do when they write), participate in the teacher's writing demonstration (a shared writing experience with students), share ideas, compose with peers, confer with Ronda, and receive response through the use of an Author's Chair that allows students to share what they have written with peers (Anderson, 2000; Atwell, 1998; Calkins, 1994; Graves & Hansen, 1983; Kissel, 2006). Often, what the children learned during the workshop transferred to other learning centers - for example, when they wrote letters to loved ones at the writing center, studied maps in the block center, handed "customers" receipts in the restaurant center, and looked at informational texts in the science center. [...] the questioning of peers became influential in the writing children composed. [...] for teachers of pre-kindergarten children, it is important to acknowledge the images placed on the page as symbols with intentional meanings.
