Kindergarten Writing Center


This is the ULTIMATE Kindergarten Writing Center resource. This writing center is designed to be used in the classroom or to send a writing folder home to use for distance learning. Each month comes with 5 themes and multiple writing options for each theme.  This way, you can personalize the writing assignments for each student depending on their writing skills.  They can all be writing on the same topic, but be working at their own level.







The idea is for you to use one theme a week for the month. Within each theme there are over 35 worksheets for you to use to meet your students' needs. This resource is designed so no matter where your students are on their journey to becoming independent writers there are multiple skills they can practice at their level. 

Here are the skills/resources included for every theme:

1. vocabulary cards

2. vocabulary lists

3. vocabulary sheets

4. folder cover (editable version included)

5. checklists for you to assign weekly work (editable version included)

6. vocabulary sheets (3 versions)

7. labeling sheets (two versions)

8. make a list (3 versions)

9. sentence writing sheets (10 versions)

10. story sequencing (2 versions)

11. story elements (2 versions)





You can either design this as a writing center in your classroom or prepare a folder for the students to take home. I have included posters that are full sheets of paper or mini versions to glue and laminate into the writing folders. These posters include:

-color words

-number words

-alphabet

-sight words (editable version included)

-sentence stems (editable version included)

-sentence best practices

-folder covers (editable version included)

Pre-Reading Strategies - 4 Tips on Teaching Kids How to Read! FREEBIE

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!


Click on the image below to sign up for my newsletter, and I will immediately send you an email with this 50 page freebie!  I hope you enjoy!

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!
