*NOTE: If you have already purchased my Beginning Writing Rubric (Kindergarten), you might want to purchase my Kindergarten Beginning Writing Rubric Mini Pack. It contains the student-sized rubrics only.*
This is a simple writing rubric for Pre-K or the beginning of the year in Kindergarten. It is great for getting students to become great authors. It helps them to focus on their pictures (where most of the story is at first) and learning to add words to their stories through labeling or writing sentences. Each step in the rubric can be used to develop minilessons for Writer's Workshop.
1. Is your picture colored neatly using 5 or more colors?
2. Does your picture have details?
3. Did you write words to go with your picture?
I have included 2 large versions to hang on the wall as well as 2 small versions for writing journals, mini offices, or to attach to student work. The color version will catch the attention of your students, while the “less-colored” version is more copier-friendly.
