Most writing prompts are too difficult for kindergarteners, but "My First Spring Journal" is designed just for emergent writers. These 31 simple writing prompts will get your new writers in the practice of drawing their thoughts and realizing that letters make words and words can tell your thoughts. With a little teacher guidance, these prompts would work for the youngest of writers.....even preschool aged kids. These beginning writing printables are perfect for the first year of school or for any emerging writer! They would work for whole group writing, writers workshop, or they would be great in a writing center. These writing prompts would also be well suited to ELL students or RTI students.
