This is a packet of worksheets, assessments and activities designed to help teach the Writing Common Core Standards for Kindergarten. It has been updated for 2017.
Worksheets for ALL Kindergarten Writing Common Core Standards are included.
For the first three standards, which address opinion writing, informational writing, and narrative writing, the students are given the opportunity to write several different pieces on several different topics using a step-by-step approach that allows them to write and develop at their own pace. Each writing assignments includes the following steps:
Step One: Students draw a picture of the topic and label their drawing with any words/sounds they are able.
Step Two: Students draw and label a picture of the topic and write a sentence to go along with their picture(s).
Step Three: Students use their work from the previous steps to create an outline of their writing, which includes a topic sentence, three middle sentences, and an ending sentence.
Step Four: Students write at least 5 sentences on the given topic.
Topics for step-by-step writing include:
Opinion Pieces: My Favorite Animal, My Favorite Book, My Favorite Toy
Informational Pieces: Animal Report, Community Helper Report, Sport Report, Blank Report (Any topic can be used.)
Narrative Pieces: My Birthday Party, Christmas Day, My First Day of Kindergarten, My Story (Students can choose an experience to write about.)
*A list of digital writing ideas
*Two shared writing experiences (Field Trip and Dr. Seuss Books)
Each worksheet contains the Common Core Standard it addresses clearly printed at the top of the page. I have found this incredibly useful in helping parents to understand the concepts being taught. Clear directions are printed on each page.
Content Standards Addressed:
W.K.1, W.K.2, W.K.3, W.K.5, W.K.6, W.K.7, W.K.8
(Writing standards 4, 9, and 10 do not apply to kindergarten)
