Kindergarten Writing Center


Teachers know specific standards are more frustrating to teach than others. For instance, this may be teaching kindergarteners to add and subtract. Additionally, this can be learning all 26 letters and their sounds. However, this can also be learning to write. Honestly, there are just so many aspects to learn with writing. This can cause teachers and students to become overwhelmed and frustrated. Thankfully, the Kindergarten Writing Center Bundle is here to help! It contains so many resources that help inspire students to become writers. Most importantly, it guides students through the writing process in a supportive, step-by-step process.



Kindergarten Writing Center Bundle 


This is the ULTIMATE Kindergarten Writing Center resource! It contains everything needed to create writing centers in the classroom or support students as they learn at home. Best of all, it includes a ton of resources to support students on their journey to being writers. 


Writing fluency does not happen overnight. It takes a lot of time, practice, and patience to learn the different aspects. Thus, this bundle includes five themes for each month. Additionally, there are multiple writing options for each theme. Since every student learns differently, this allows for personalized writing assignments. Thankfully, this helps students adjust to the writing process at a speed appropriate for them. 


Within each theme, there are over 35 worksheets to meet students where they are at in their writing journey. Thus, the various options ensure students receive scaffolding every step of the way.




Kindergarten Writing Center Themes

This resource focuses on different themes to help keep writing fresh and exciting. By doing this, students are always writing, but they will always have a new topic to look forward to. For instance, April includes themed resources for spring, farms, Earth Day, the life cycle of a chick, and Easter. Students will love writing with this resource! 



Resources for Each Theme 


There are tons of resources for every theme to guide students through the writing process! Therefore, there is consistency for students as they progress in writing skills throughout the year. For instance, every theme includes vocabulary cards, lists, and sheets. Additionally, there are labeling sheets, make list activities, and sentence writing sheets. There are also story sequencing and story element activities to work on reading skills. Best of all, there are multiple versions of each item! There are also checklists to help keep track of everything when assigning weekly work. Since every classroom is different, the checklist is editable. 



Setting up a Kindergarten Writing Center 


There is no one right way to set up a writing center. There is a prominent spot in some classrooms to hang up lots of guides and resources. In other classrooms, space is tight, so just a few resources can be out. However, there are also classrooms at home for distance learning or home school. Thankfully, a folder can go home with students! There are many posters to pick from in different sizes to fit in any space. This includes color words, number words, the alphabet, and sight words. Additionally, there are sentence stems, which are essential to helping students write complete sentences! Since there are so many aspects to remember, there are posters for sentence best practices. This is a great way to help students check their writing!

Where do you start when it comes to teaching children how to read?  I have taught so many TK/Kindergarten students how to read over the years and then something magical happened....it was finally time to teach MY OWN son how to read!  We have been practicing 4 pre-reading strategies at home, the same ones I use in the classroom, and he is working though the process of learning those foundational skills to start his reading journey.


There are 4 areas I focus on first when teaching children how to read:
✅ Letter Knowledge
✅ Phonological Awareness
✅ Letter Sounds
✅ Blending Sounds to Read Words




I have a 50 page download for you that will focus on each strategy.  For each strategy I give you an explanation of what it is, teaching tips, learning activities, and printables to teach with!  This would be perfect for teachers, teachers to send home to parents, homeschool parents, or anyone who is ready to start teaching kids how to read!

Kindergarten Morning Work / Digital and Paper for Distance Learning

I have a great solution to teaching kindergarten distance learning style.  I think on of the most stressful thing leading into this year is the idea of going back and forth from "in person" teaching to "remote teaching."  I had the idea to create consistency and routine by implementing kindergarten morning work that can be used completely in the classroom or completely at home!


The way this kindergarten morning work was designed it is both digital and paper.  Each month there are 25 ELA worksheets and 25 math worksheets, as well as 6 Boom Card games that practice the same skills as the worksheets.  The worksheets focus on 6 different skills each month so you can introduce the skill one time and then the students can complete the rest independently.  Let's take a closer look at the kindergarten worksheets-

For the month of August, there are 26 worksheets included because there are 26 letters in the alphabet, and I wanted there to be an option to practice every letter!

I discretely labeled each worksheet by month, week, and day and avoided writing "AUGUST KINDERGARTEN MORNING WORK" on it so you could differentiate when and who you used this resource with.  Maybe you want to use with your struggling 1st grade students, advanced preschool students, or your kinders that need extra practice in March.  Now you can use it WHENEVER you want!


The Boom Cards are digital task cards that can be played on https://wow.boomlearning.com.  You can create a FREE teacher account and generate a hyperlink that can be published or sent to your students on any learning website (Seesaw, Google Classroom, etc.). If you want to invest in the paid version, you can create a class list, student long-ins, and that lets you track their progress.  But with the free account, each student can play, you just can't see their scores.



The Boom Card games are self checking, so if they submit their answer and they get it wrong, it has them try again!  Here are the games included that match the August Morning Work resource:








I packaged this morning work resource in several different bundles.  You can grab the worksheets or Boom Cards separately, bundled together, in bundles for each month, or bundled for the whole year.  I will link HERE so you can see all of the different options that would work best for you!
