Kindergarten CCSS: Writing

For Kindergarteners, this Common Core area helps students gain mastery of writing skills by working collaboratively and producing written texts, understanding syntax and vocabulary, and organizing their ideas. Those goals can be met with support and prompting. Among the complete standards for this grade, kindergarteners will be asked to: use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to write opinion pieces, respond to questions and suggestions from peers and add details to strengthen writing as needed, explore digital tools to publish their writing, work on a shared writing project, and recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.
