Kindergarten writing frames to engage kindergartners who enjoy outer space are available in our free eMembers area. Then log in and find this download on the free downloads page. The free eMembers area has several pages and you may have to scroll down to locate the freebie. There are other space-themed writing printables on that page, as well.
What’s included? Work covers for color or black and white printing are in this printable. If you prefer the color pages but do not have a color printer available, just print in grayscale.
There are pages to encourage sentence writing with vocabulary provided to encourage emergent writers, such as the following. The writing lines show the middle point with a dashed line to help with letter formation. I’m sure teachers will still hear the question, “How do you spell?”
For more independent writers, there are some writing prompts, such as this one. The pages with word support might be used as a resource for creative writing stories.
For finished projects and even just for sentence writing pages, there is a writing rubric. A student and a teacher version is provided. Students do better when they self-evaluate their own work. “I wrote and drew all during writing” means “I was working the whole time and not talking.” We have to state things in positive terms! The pictures mean yes or no.
Some of the children will know about and “miss” having Pluto as a planet. There are acronyms to help them remember the order of the planets in outer space such as My (Mercury) Very (Venus) Energetic (Earth) Mother (Mars) Just (Jupiter) Served (Saturn) Us (Uranus) Nectarines (Neptune). She used to serve nine pizzas when Pluto was still around. Oh, well.
Thank you for reading. I hope you will find this and other helpful educational resources in the free eMember area.
35 adventure writing pages with differentiation — set one requires little writing for emergent writers, set two has more space for writing and drawing, and then decorated paper is provided for independent writers.
Letter writing to family and friends is a good second-grade lesson. The free printable is in our free Amember area. The templates are for friendly letters (as in not business letters) and could be part of shared research.
