What educators are saying

I like the structure this resource provides students so they always know what to expect and were able to become more independent with their writing.
Love how easy to use these are and how there are options for sentence starters or blank pages! My students really improved their writing using the checkboxes at the bottom!

    Writing is an important skill to practice daily. This resource makes it easy with 30 monthly print and go writing prompt worksheets that are perfect for beginning writers. Each month includes a mix of seasonal, holiday, and anytime sentence starters. These are perfect writing prompts for kindergarten. You can easily use them in a writing folder or turn the prompts into a journal.

    This resource includes:

    • 30 pages with a solid sentence starter (great for beginning writers)
    • 30 of the SAME pages with a traceable sentence starter
    • 30 of the SAME pages without a sentence starter (great for independent writers)
    • An optional front cover for writing notebook or journal
    • A blank writing page for students who want to write more
    • A clickable table of contents

    Each page includes:

    • Large writing lines specifically for young beginning writers
    • An area for students to illustrate their writing
    • A themed word bank with illustrations.
    • A writing convention checklist

    The writing conventions checklists reminds students to:

    • Use a capital letter
    • Put spaces between their words
    • Stretch out the words to spell them
    • Use punctuation
    • Draw a picture

    An optional front cover is included if you'd like to turn the writing prompt pages into a writing notebook or journal.

    A blank page with lines is included for students who would like to write more.

    There are 3 differentiated versions included. One version includes the story starters listed below with related pictures and vocabulary words in a solid font. The second version includes the story starters listed below with related pictures and vocabulary words in a traceable font. The final version includes only the pictures and vocabulary words only (no sentence starter).

    Sentence Starters: Students use the word bank to complete the sentence on the worksheet. This version is great for small group instruction to provide your writers with support. Use these sentence starter writing prompts for kindergarten or beginning writers. Both solid font and traceable font versions are included.

    Word Bank Only: Use this option with your advanced writers. Students use the word bank to help build their own stories. This version is easy to print and place into an independent work center or folder. These are a great transition for more independent writers.

    All versions include a writing convention checklist to support students in self-checking their work.
