New student writing activity for kindergarten
By incorporating writing prompts into your daily or weekly routine, kids will get the chance to do meaningful writing more regularly.
Check out my post about the early writing stages to see how journal writing looks for kids at different levels of development. If you could be in change of school for a day, what would you do? Thank you so much!
At the start of the year a mini-lesson could be something as simple as where to get more paper when you run out of it. Enjoy the strange spellings, humorous thoughts and the innocent excitement that will lead to young students becoming life-long writers.
What is your favorite book? As kids are ready use the unlined writing prompt pages and have kids draw their own pictures to respond to the prompts.
What are your tips or questions for teaching kindergarten writing? What do you like about it?
Teach letter formation in context Kill two birds with one stone. Journals can also help teachers measure progress and find out more about their students' interests. If you could be in change of school for a day, what would you do? Rather than giving children a single piece of paper or a bound notebook during the Workshop, give them a stack of 5 pieces of paper stapled together. Kids learn to talk by talking, and we know kindergartners have mastered that skill. She likes her swing. Teach developmentally appropriate mini-lessons. In the beginning you could focus on really modeling the steps taken to respond to a prompt—brainstorming ideas to respond, drawing a detailed picture, then labeling objects or writing—over the course of a few days or a week. Aim for at least three times a week if you want your children to grow as writers. Would you like to write that? How about you write about our vacation to California?
