Most writing prompts are too difficult for entering kindergarteners, but "My First Journal" is designed just for emergent writers. These 25 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 age kids. These beginning writing printables are perfect for the first few weeks of school! They would work for whole group writing, writers workshop, or they would be great in a writing center.
