Do your kindergarten writing center activities need some freshening up? I’ve gathered my 5 favorite kindergarten writing center ideas that are super engaging and easy for you to set up. Changing up your writing center activities weekly or monthly is a great way to keep your students interested. My students know that at the beginning of the month, they will have the opportunity to complete their monthly self portrait, tracing calendar, and holiday coloring pages. I also love to include any seasonal or holiday activities that promote writing and pencil control – like tracing pictures and vocabulary words. Keep scrolling to check out the activities!

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.

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.
