Kindergarten Writing Goals Here is a quick idea for helping your students take ownership of their writing Goals. I keep the masters see below. I set the goals with the kids during a writing conference.
We decide, together, what they need to work on to make their writing better.
We cut out that goal and glue it down to the chart they keep in their folder. The kids generally only get one new goal at a time. I remind the kids every day when we begin Writing Workshop to check their writing goal.
We look through their writing to see if they are consistently meeting that goal, or if they still need to work on it. If they have met it for example, if their goal was to leave spaces between their words and they consistently do thatI let them color in that goal on their chart and we choose new goal.
The goals work across writing genres. We work on other writing skills at the same time. For example--the whole class might be working on writing facts, or adding details to a personal narrative. But at the same time, individual kids will be working on the differentiated goals on their chart.
Not every writing conference focuses on these goals, but I almost always mention them. For example, I may conference with a student about our whole class objective--writing facts. Some kids go back and work on a goal that they had once mastered but now need more practice.
