What is KinderWriting®?

KinderWriting® Curriculum is an engaging, kindergarten, genre-based writing curriculum. KinderWriting® encourages young learners to look inward at their endless possibilities as a writer. KinderWriting® is based upon nine units: Writing With Pictures, Writing With Sentences, Writing With Stories, Writing With Narrative, Writing With Opinion, Writing With Direction, Writing With Persuasion, Writing With Imagination, and Writing With Information. Each unit is broken down to 20 lessons. The units cover 20 days of academic instruction. The lesson plans have listed unit objectives, “I can” statements, Common Core writing standards and needed mentor texts.

KinderWriting encourages a daily routine of a minilesson, independent writing, and a share time. Each of the lessons in KinderWriting are well thought out for the young writer and spiral back to previous lessons to ensure students are retaining their skills. KinderWriting also includes unit anchor charts, a variety of writing paper, conferring schedules and note sheets, sample writings, student writing goals display, writing rubrics, and step-by-step guides that are made specifically for each unit.

Ah, I love this but I teach PreK/First/Sped

You will notice that this packet is marked as Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade! This is not something I do often or lightly! I find it very frustrating to purchase a packet and it not be grade level appropriate. When it comes to writing there are two major parts to a writing block. The mini lesson and the independent writing time. In a mini lesson, we are able to meet students at their level and expand through modeling of our own stories. If working with Pre-K students, you might need to expand on your teacher modeling and spend less time on the independent writing. For first grade, you will want to lessen the modeling and increase student independent writing time. At this time I do not have a separate Pre-K writing program planned. I do have plans to release a first grade writing program in the summer of 2018. Please note that NO student materials have the "KINDER" name on them so you do not have to worry about this! As teachers we are the only ones to ultimately make the decision as to know if it will work for our kids, if I can help with this decision please let me know!
