Tell students that the new year means a fresh start and they can make promises to themselves that are positive and realistic. As a class, brainstorm a few resolutions together.
Writing in Kindergarten Wednesday, August 14, I can't believe there was ever a time that I did not enjoy teaching writing! It now is one of my favorite subjects to teach! It's just so gratifying! One of my favorite ways to incorporate writing into my lessons is to make class books.
These books are fun because my students are the authors, and it really helps them to understand how books are made. Then we put the class books into our classroom library and they are hands down always the favorite to read!
I made this little book to use at the beginning of the school year. Here's my sample page on the inside: I love having my students write the books themselves, and usually "translate" under their words. However, you could always have your students dictate their sentence to you and just have them draw their picture.
I added this little book to my TpT store as a free download, and included an editable cover page so you can type your name directly onto the cover.
I always incorporate a writing station into my language arts rotations. My students write in their journals every day. Some days I give them a topic or a sentence stem, some days I let them free write, whatever their little hearts desire! I really encourage inventive and "best guess" spelling so the words are by no means meant for my students to spell their monthly words correctly.
I just provide them as a guide to help my students brainstorm what they will write about. I keep all their journals through the year and then wrap them up with a cute bow.
Then I leave their journals out on their desks when we have Open House at the end of the school year. The kids and the parents love to see their growth through the year!

You can purchase these journals in my TpT shop! I also incorporate the monthly words into a word work station. At this station, I do encourage correct spelling of both sight words and vocabulary words. I print the monthly themed words onto card stock and place them in a pocket chart.
My students use the cards to complete the writing pages. Here are some samples from my Fall Words file.
I have four options for the writing practice to help differentiate the levels of my students. Here's some samples of how I use less support for each page. On this page, the students write the sight word and vocab word independently. Here, they choose the word to complete each sentence and draw their own pictures.
You can find these words plus more in my TpT shop! Can you tell how much I love teaching writing yet?? Here's some of my most favorite writing resources that I have found from my amazing blogging friends:South Padre Island Spring Break Must-See Photos & Videos.
