Use these rubrics for all three writing genres that kindergartners are expected to use. There are four levels of growth so that you can determine next steps in terms of instruction and support. Included are rubrics for the 3 main genres in kindergarten: opinion, informative, and narrative writing.

There are 3 areas included on each rubric for teachers to score. Teachers will look for:
Use of complete sentences (with examples)
Use of phonetic spelling (with examples)
Writing within the genre (opinion, informative, or narrative)
This resource can be used multiple ways. Teachers could use it twice during a unit as a pre- and post-assessment of writing. Teachers could use the same rubric once a month to monitor student growth in a certain genre. Teachers could also teach students how to use the rubric so that they can learn to self-monitor and self-assess!
