If you go back to school in August, we have provided 4 weeks of pre-writing practice for your kindergarten students. If you don’t have school for 4 full weeks in August, pick and choose the weeks you want to use with your students.
• Week 1 practices pre-writing skills. Students trace the dots to complete a picture.
• Week 2 – same as week 1
• Week 3 practices left to right progression and attention to detail. Students draw a line through the simple maze, beginning to end.
• Week 4 – same as week 3 (a more detailed picture to trace is day 5 of this week).
Writing in Kindergarten is so important. “Emergent literacy research has shown us that children are not ruined by being allowed to write before they can read. Rather, they learn many important concepts and develop the confidence that they can write” (Cunningham, 1995, p. 25).
We have created these Daily Writing in Kindergarten booklets to compliment Morning Message, Daily News, Shared/Guided Writing, Writer’s Workshop or any other writing experience you provide for your students in your classroom.
These booklets will allow the children to write quickly and independently every day.
– objective is name writing- Students write name and see that names are words made up of letters that are always written in the same order – students practice writing names.
