One of the things we doing throughout the year in kindergarten is write. Writing is SO important for my kinders to do.
I always tell them that if they are great writers, they will be great readers. And if they are great readers, they will be great writers.
Throughout the year we practice writing. Each month we have a writing prompt that all the kindergarten students use to write. Then we use this writing for a writing grade.
I keep the beginning of the year writing and the end of the year writing for our school folders. I was putting the writings together on Friday for their folders and I absolutely LOVED looking at each child's progress. It seems like throughout the year you forget how they came in. I always want more and more from my students so I was in aw when I saw their writings.
The prompt for the beginning of the year was tell me about your family. The last prompt was tell me your favorite thing about kindergarten.
Here are some of my favs.
|End of Year|
This writing says: My favorite thing is the flower because we painted.
|Beginning of the Year|
This writing says: Red
|End of the Year|
This writing says: My favorite thing is painting and making crafts.
We worked and worked a writing this year. I used a lot of oral sentences with my kiddos. We then added and to our sentences and then because. I was thrilled that most students used and or because in their final writing.
I think my kiddos is an excellent job!! I am thrilled with their results.
Thanks for reading!
Have a Wolfelicious day!
