We have added pages with writing prompts if you don’t want to use the blank journal pages.
Use this packet as a quick write warm up for your Kindergarten writing.
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 Kindergarten Writing 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.
May, month 9: After 8 months of guided writing, your students should be able to write completely independently.
There are no questions for guidance. You may give them a topic each day or let them write about whatever they want to write about on the blank pages of these journal pages.
