I'm starting writer's workshop in my 5th grade class this fall and am looking for suggestions for resource books that people have found helpful. There are so many books, I don't know where to start!

Both of these authors helped me a lot. In the Middle, by Atwell, helped me set up my WW.

I agree with the previous poster. Nancie Atwell and Lucy Calkins are masterful.

You might also want to check out Katie Wood Ray's The Writing Workshop: Working Through the Hard Parts (And They're All Hard Parts) and Linda Reif's Inside the Writer's-Reader's Notebook: A Workshop Essential. I found both of those books very helpful to me.

reading Using the Writer's Notebook on Grades 3-8. It's excellent. Notebook Know-How: Strategies for the Writer's Notebook by Aimee Buckner is also very good.

Nancy Atwell is the voice in my head (and who I want to be when I grow up. Lucy is also great and Ralph Fletcher is amazing...You can't go wrong with any of these educators.

All of the above posts list the best writing resource authors out there. I refer to all of them. I also use a site for some of my lessons - google "Nevada Teacher's Writing Project, 6 traits". You'll find lessons for each of the traits at all grade levels. You'll also find lessons for subject area writing.

This summer, I have read Ruth Ayres and Stacey Shubitz Day by Day. It is published by Stenhouse. It helps with everything! I have used Atwell's program as well. Lucy is too commercial for me. Her older stuff is better than her moneymaking kits.
