Step Up to Writing

(Priester uses this because she found that students took a few minutes to login in and settle into each station.  It gives 25-30 minutes per station with calm transitions. It also creates a window of time for a reader’s workshop (silent reading) of non-Read 180 books at the beginning of class and time for a brief daily class community circle.)
