Evidence-Based Writing for kindergarten offers 64 pages of writing practice and prompts. It is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and includes a writing rubric, a student writing checklist, a five-page writing process practice packet, and pages of writing prompts to encourage higher-level thinking and thoughtful writing. Each writing prompt is paired with a graphic organizer to help students plan, research, and prewrite. Specific writing types taught are opinion/argumentative, informative/explanatory, narrative, and research writing. Kindergarten writing prompts include the perfect playground, music class, pet choices, favorite colors, and a frog's life. An accompanying online resource offers samples of scored student writing. The Applying the Standards: Evidence-Based Writing series emphasizes the reading-writing connection by requiring students to read and use facts from literary and informational texts. This is a series of six 64-page books for students in kindergarten to grade 5. Various writing skills are taught in correlated activities such as prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing writing. Of particular emphasis throughout the series are the Common Core State Standards and the teaching of evidence-based writing.
