Kindergarten Procedure Writing Prompts
It can be hard to get kindergarteners excited about writing projects; they are still learning proper handwriting skills and have a hard time focusing for more than 10 minutes. But I have the perfect thing for you!
These kindergarten procedure writing prompts are simple to use and will engage your students in a writing task. There is a year’s worth of student-friendly writing prompts, and some are holiday-themed too!
When I created these procedure writing prompts and worksheets, I made sure that there were lots of options. Some prompts are easier, and others are less scaffolded. All have dotted writing lines for little learners to improve their handwriting.
Each prompt has a box for illustrations or something for students to color in.

Procedure Writing Worksheets for 4th Graders
Unlike kindergarteners, fourth grade students are expected to write detailed procedural essays! They need to support their writing with facts and details. They are also expected to use more complex linking words such as, ‘for instance…’
Although fourth graders are often independent and proficient writers, it’s still important for ‘how to’ writing to be fun and accessible. That’s why I have included engaging topics, cute clip art, and scaffolding in these how to writing prompts and worksheets. In short, a blank piece of paper can really make a writing lesson dull. These prompts are sure to make how to writing more fun.
