Read aloud picture books that would demonstrate different types of voice and then try these follow-up lessons or writing experiments to hone skills. Read Dr. Seuss' picture book My Many Colored Days.

Using Picture Books to Teach Characterization in Writing Workshop
You are a crumpled school paper in the hallway -- describe your day. This is especially helpful for primary students, but including emotion so that a different reader can feel the same excitement is also important. Teaching our students to read their own stories with enthusiasm and excitement is important, since they don't have the vocabulary to really use effective word choice. About Us.

Writers Workshop in first grade this year has been quite the learning curve for me. I need to remind you that I have never taught first grade until this year and the last time I taught writing was well before the workshop model was popular. I am still by no means an expert, but I wanted to share a few picture books that really worked well for minilessons and conferring that I discovered this year with the help of my amazing ELA coach, blog reading, and Pinterest searching. The very first minilesson that my ELA coach modeled for me was using a wordless picture book. How is a wordless picture book going to help?
