SJAWP Super Saturday: March 7th for K-3rd Graders

Saturday, Mar 7 from 9:30am–12:30pm (11 days away)
5 to 8 yrs old
Optional: adults can stay or take a breather
$30 plus 3.95% service fee

Our Super Saturdays use a "lab school" model, in which teachers and students participate in the presenter’s workshop lesson together in small groups, generally including the following: mini-lesson on writing craft, study of a mentor text, demonstration of innovative and engaging pedagogical strategies, large blocks of time for students and teachers to write, and sharing writing in small groups or whole group.

While each workshop can stand alone, students and teachers can draw much more meaning from each seminar if they have other seminars to build on. Furthermore, registering for the entire series saves you money and time.

Event Schedule
9:30-10:00am - Registration in front of Sweeney Hall Courtyard
10-10:30am - Writing Games Warm-up
10:30-12:30pm - Saturday Seminar lesson led by Teacher Consultant


March 7, 2020: Art as a Medium for Writing

In this workshop students will be inspired to create interesting stories based on famous pieces of art. Students will have a virtual gallery. Works by Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, and many other renown artists will be presented. Students will have time to select an art piece and write down their ideas for a story. Time will be allotted to share ideas in a small group prior to writing. Students will spend time drafting a story, and once they have completed it they will share it with a partner.

Parents are invited to join conversations about writing in the free parallel session, Parent University, while your child is in the writing workshop.

Adults are invited to stick around and attend our FREE parent university with classes on how to support your child's writing at home, or take a morning to themselves after getting their kids to their classes.
