Engaging Writing Prompts and Word Walls for Kindergarten

There are many hands-on interactive options to help your child practice writing at home and in the classroom too. Word walls are one of my favorite ways to help kindergarten students practice lowercase letters, sentence structure, and all kinds of new skills they’re learning. 

To create your own word wall in the classroom, use sight words on flash cards to place under each letter. I like to separate each of the letters of the alphabet using tape so it’s easier for kids to see.

You could also use a large sheet of paper to post on the wall. I like to use lined paper to help students practice writing in straight lines. Use this giant interactive worksheet to encourage your kindergartners to practice writing letters, words, and sentences themselves.

You could even add your students names with a picture of them next to it so your preschoolers will begin to recognize their names from other text.

Each student may have a turn adding new words, letters, and phrases to the word wall every day during circle time.

You can theme word walls to match your kindergarten classroom theme, an upcoming holiday, or a book you’ve been reading together during story time. To theme your word wall, ask students to share words and sentences that match the theme. For example, sharing color words while reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Beginning Essay Writing with Kindergarten Students

The first step in writing a great essay is research. Getting your kindergarten students to do research might seem impossible at first, but if you can make it fun they’ll love researching all about their topics. The key is to choose something that’s interesting to them.

That’s why I love these Animal Reports so much. They encourage kids to dive into learning about their favorite animals. You might even be surprised by some of the fun animals they choose!
