Yes! Primary students can grow into being independent writers! Disregarding the false notion that writing instruction in the primary grades needs to be mostly teacher directed, Jennifer Jacobson shows teachers how to develop a primary writing workshop that helps nurture independent, engaged writers.

No More "I'm Done!" demonstrates how to create a more productive, engaging, and rewarding writer's workshop. Jennifer guides teachers from creating a supportive classroom environment through establishing effective routines; shows teachers how to set up a writer's workshop; and provides an entire year of developmentally appropriate mini-lessons that build confidence and, ultimately, independence. Through her years of teaching and consulting, Jennifer has heard all the tough questions about working with primary writers: How do I get my students to sustain for a full writing period? What do I do about the student who can't choose a topic? What about the student who writes about the same thing every day? She answers these questions and many more in the final chapter of the book.

Practical, insightful, and, most importantly, effective, No More "I'm Done!" will help primary teachers create a classroom full of writers who possess the skills to succeed in later grades and beyond. As Jennifer says, "You'll know you've succeeded when you have a few available moments and your kids shout, 'Can we write?' And you say, yes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A book that is nothing short of an intense professional development package. Readers will find that Jacobson's friendly and articulate voice conveys just enough confidence to convince you that the suggested instructional strategies will lead to success over time, but not so much authority as to make you feel overwhelmed by the need to follow every suggestion she offers." - Education Review

"Ms Jacobson's concepts seemed revolutionary to me: imagine children begging for more than an hour of writing time every day. Her book was full of passion, examples from children's clever stories and paragraphs, and inspiration for the parent or teacher hoping to inspire kids in writing." - Rebecca Reads blog
