Mar 09, · Teaching 'How To' Writing To Kinders!
This year we switched from writing 'expert books' to 'how to' books for Writers Workshop. We will be entering week 3- where I will be sending them off to come up with topics on their own, but had a great time teaching them the components of 'how to' with a lot of visuals, fun and food!
Lots of kindergarten writing resources, including printable worksheets, book ideas, rubrics, lesson plans, learning stations, and more! Write about a time when you found the answer to something you didn’t know. How did you feel? Use these kindergarten writing prompts to help your young students practice writing, reading, and reflection.
This is a complete & fun learning method to teach anyone to read. I first used it with my 6 yr old adopted daughter from Russia. She has several learning disabilities, yet was reading 1st grade books and writing by the end of our 1st home schooling year.
