Looking for some fresh and fun kindergarten writing center ideas? I’ve gathered my 5 favorite activities that are super easy for you to prep and use. Changing up your kindergarten writing center activities weekly or monthly is a great way to keep your students engaged and practicing their skills. My students know that at the beginning of the month, they will have the opportunity to complete their monthly self portrait and tracing calendar. I also love to include any seasonal or holiday activities that promote writing and pencil control – like tracing pictures, coloring pages, and vocabulary cards.
Calendar Tracing Kindergarten Writing Center
Extend your calendar tracing activities with meaningful coloring pages to learn about and celebrate special days throughout the year! Students will love the calendar coloring pages with fun pictures and information about the special day. The calendar template is great for calendar notebooks, calendar time, or morning work too!
Lined Paper with Picture Box
Journal writing is a classic writing center for kindergarten – it’s great for incorporating creative writing and storytelling in your classroom! Collect your students’ writing to make a booklet – this makes a beautiful keepsake for families at the end of the school year and is an excellent way for you to track progress and measure growth.
Kindergarten Writing Center Activities: Picture Tracing Task Cards
Strengthen fine motor muscles needed for writing with fun picture tracing cards! These task box cards are super easy to prep and change out throughout the school year to keep your students practicing their pencil grip and strengthening those fine motor skills.
Kindergarten Writing Center Idea: Vocabulary Word Tracing Cards
Vocabulary word and picture cards are a must-have for your kindergarten writing center. Students practice reading, handwriting, and fine motor skills while learning vocabulary words! Switch out the cards for holidays, seasons, and special days to inspire your kiddos to write about these events.
My FAVORITE Kindergarten Writing Center Activity: Monthly Self-Portraits
Monthly self-portraits are one of my favorite kindergarten activities! My students look forward to doing them each month and already know the process. I set up a mirror at a one-person table and students sit to draw themselves and write their names. These are great to keep on hand to track growth and progress, and at the end of the school year make an awesome keepsake for families.
