Teaching a Kindergartener to Write Sentences

Kindergarteners are ripe for learning experiences, their minds eager to make sense of the world around them. As they begin to grasp the concept of phonics and the way word sounds are put together, their minds start to lay the pathways for reading skills.

Once sight words are mastered and they begin to sound out words and recognize those sight words, kindergarteners are able to read sentences on their own, opening up a whole world of communication and amazing books in the palms of their hands.

When teaching kindergarteners to write sentences, they don’t have to know the names of the parts of speech or more advanced concepts. They just have to know how to talk and read.

Parts of speech come later as the student begins to craft more and more sentences based on the way that they talk. Their brain, for the most part, will have adapted to the language that it’s heard since birth and plot those language pathways through the brain, telling them which words to allow and which words don’t go together.

While there are always exceptions to the rules, kindergarteners should be praised for their efforts and encouraged to include drawings along with their initial attempts at building sentence structure.

More strict rules can then be introduced, such as the things that all sentences must have. A capital letter right in the beginning shows the reader that a new thought is coming. Punctuation can be introduced as “road signs” for speech, with a period being a red light and the comma being a yellow light.

They can then learn about the subject and the predicate, practicing their identification of nouns and proper nouns and how they tell who completes the action of the complex sentence - the verb. Noun and subject will soon become synonymous, as students practice these skills as the building blocks for sentence building.

And those action words help the sentences move! As they get better at their skills, you can begin to introduce the concept of adjectives to help add more specifics to the sentence. In the end, these are the basic skills or sentence building activities that kindergarteners should have when learning to write sentences.
