Starting off the kindergarten year, it’s great to review basic letter formation as well as teaching students how to write their first and last names. Most students will still be developing their fine motor skills so provide students with plenty of hands-on, small muscle-building activities.
My personal goal during the Kindergarten year is to help my kiddos learn to write strong sentences. However, some students will be able to write a few sentences by the end of the year. In this case, use our paragraph frames to help bridge the gap between sentence writing and paragraph writing. Use the following free kindergarten writing printables to continue to build writing skills over the coming year.
