Writing Book
Does anyone have a really good book for teaching writing? I teach 4th grade.

The Writer's Workshop by Katie Wood Ray--setting up and running a workshop in elementary grades

Craft Lessons by Ralph Fletcher--both the fiction and the nonfiction one

ohhh! There are so many!
I love anything by Barry Lane! He is very practical which I love! Before you buy anything though - check out the site it FULL of great writing activities for all age groups.

Two awesome writing books
I just read Aimee Buckner's book, Notebook Know How. This is an excellent book on how to set up a writing notebook with strategy lessons throughout the book. Another great book is Razzle Dazzle Writing by Melissa Forney. She gives you lessons for 50 target skills with great ideas.

Writing help
I use anything Gretchen Bernabai and Barry Lane. They are awesome teachers of writing and they have a great sense of humor that gels into their instructional books. Barry Lane's book Hooked on Meaning is great and it comes with a DVD with short mini lessons. My students love them! Gretchen Bernabai has a great blogspot and books that offer great craft writing lessons. She has just come out with a book for grammar called Grammar Keepers and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Good luck!
