Description

This yearlong bundle of narrative, opinion, and informational writing lessons for Kindergarten makes it easy to plan your writing instruction! Also included in this Kindergarten writing bundle are posters, assessments, visuals, and Kindergarten writing rubrics that will save you time!

Teaching Kindergarteners to write is a big challenge - especially if some of your students begin Kindergarten not even knowing their letters! You want your students to grow in their writing (and drawing!), but maybe you're not sure where to start.

Or maybe you DO know where to start, but planning fun, developmentally-appropriate lessons is taking up a ton of your time!

When I first began teaching Kindergarten, I struggled to find appropriate, easy-to-use writing lessons. At one school, our writing curriculum didn't have enough plans for the entire year, and preparing the lessons took a LOT of time. At my next school, there was no writing curriculum at all!

So I decided to design my own Kindergarten writing lessons based upon my students' needs. And I saw firsthand how they helped my students go from drawing (or scribbling!) to writing complete stories and books. My students were excited to write, and some of them began conducting their own "writing workshops" at home!

Today, over 5,000 teachers have used these same Kindergarten writing lessons. They use them either as a standalone writing curriculum or to supplement their school's existing writing program.

The materials in this Kindergarten writing curriculum will help you:

- Bring your students from drawing to writing

- Establish writing workshop procedures that increase students' independence

- Engage students in meaningful, enjoyable writing activities

- Challenge students as writers, while still honoring their developmental needs

- Significantly cut down on your planning and prep time

This year-long Kindergarten writing workshop curriculum includes:

- 7 units that teach writing workshop routines and procedures, personal narratives, patterned books, how-to books, opinion/persuasive writing, fiction and fairy tale writing, and nonfiction/informational writing

- Complete minilessons with plenty of detail, so that you can easily leave them for a sub (131 minilessons total are included, leaving you time for reteaching and special projects)

- Materials to accompany the minilessons (graphic organizers, posters, and visual aids)

- Teacher-friendly and student-friendly rubrics

- Organizational materials to simplify planning and assessment

The writing lessons each take about 10 minutes to teach. Suggested mentor texts are included (so that students can learn from published authors), and you can view a list of suggestions HERE. You can also easily substitute your own texts!

You can purchase the units individually, but you save over 20% by purchasing this bundle.

Clicking on each link below will allow you to read more about the individual units. You can also buy one unit, try it out, and then contact me to receive reimbursement if you decide to buy the bundle.

What Others Are Saying About The Kindergarten Writing Bundle:

“I love using the quick mini lessons. It fits perfectly in my schedule. I have found this resource really helps me help the kiddos since I feel this is a weak area for me. I also like the progression in Unit 1. It is simple and fun and eases us into the writing process. The students really like it when we have share time. I have designated a share chair to make it super fun.”

– Tara B.

“This is by far the best writing program I have found. I used the 1st grade version last year with my 1st/2nd grade split class and this year I'm in Kindergarten using this version. I used to dread writing time, but now I love it!”

– Kelsey P.

“I use this writing curriculum in conjunction with another writing curriculum and I have been so impressed in the improvement in the level of writing that my current students are putting out in comparison to past students. I love that this curriculum provides detail lesson plans that are easy to follow and tweak to make it fit any classroom. I would highly recommend this writing curriculum.”

– Mercedes B.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the files editable?

Editable versions of the lesson plans are available. Due to copyright restrictions, the other parts of the materials (like posters and other printables) are not editable.

Will this work for homeschooling?
This curriculum is based on a traditional classroom setting, but many parents have used this for homeschool instruction as well! You can read more about how to adapt the writing workshop curriculum for homeschool students here.

If I purchase just one unit and decide I want the bundle, can I get a refund for the unit I already purchased?

Absolutely! Once you've got the bundle, you can contact TpT support and explain that you now have a duplicate purchase. They'll refund you the purchase price of that one unit.
