Teaching Kindergarteners to Write Sentences
One way to teach kindergarteners to write sentences is to model how a sentence should be structured. Show them how to begin a sentence with a capital letter and end it with a period. Have them practice writing short sentences by providing them with prompts.
Once they are able to write short sentences with ease, gradually introduce longer sentences. Help them break down the larger sentence into smaller chunks, and have them focus on one element at a time.
For example, if a student is trying to write a sentence about going to the park, help her focus on describing what she did (went) and what she saw (park). Encourage her to use adjectives and adverbs to add detail and make her writing more interesting.
Ultimately, it’s important to be patient and take things one step at a time. With practice, kindergarteners will develop the skills they need to write complete sentences.
Autumn Sentences for Kindergarten
Autumn is a wonderful time to get creative and have some fun with reading and writing! These free, printables are the perfect way to get started. Each page features a different autumn-themed activity, perfect for inspiring your young writers.
This fun reading practice worksheet is a great way to test your child’s reading comprehension skills. Your child will look at the picture at the end of each row.
Then, they’ll read two sentences and mark the one that describes the picture. This is a great opportunity to point out proper sentence structure.
Show your child how each sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a punctuation mark (period).
Your kindergartener can color the pictures, if desired.
It’s never too early to start teaching kids about punctuation marks. In kindergarten, kids can learn the basics of using periods, question marks, and exclamation points. By teaching them early on, you can help them develop good habits that will last a lifetime.
This page is perfect for practicing this skill. Your student will read each sentence and color the pumpkin that contains the proper endmark.
The final page in this pack is perfect for allowing kids a chance to show what they know about writing complete sentences. First, they’ll use the word bank to identify each picture.
Then, they’ll write a complete sentence using one or more of the fall words they just wrote. They can finish the activity by coloring the pictures on the page if they’d like.

Hello, Harvest Moon – While tired farmers and their families are in bed, the harvest moon silently climbs into the sky and starts working its magic. For some, it is the nightly signal to rise and shine. It is time to hunt, to work, or to play in the shadows. For a little girl and her cat, it is an invitation to enjoy the wonders of the night and a last flood of light before the short days of winter set in.
Awesome Autumn – Autumn is awesome! Leaves change color. Animals fly south or get ready to hibernate. People harvest crops and dress up as scary creatures for Halloween. And then there are pickup football games to play, Thanksgiving foods to eat, leaf piles to jump in―all the amazing things that happen as the air turns crisp and cool.
