36 Easy Easter Writing Prompts for Kindergarten

These Easter writing prompts for kindergarten will help your students understand the meaning of Easter and use their own words to reflect. There are lots of ideas below - both religious and non-religious - and plenty of helpful tips to help you implement them appropriately with your kindergarten class.

These Easter writing activities will help your kindergarten students practise early writing skills while reflecting on the Easter holiday in their own way. 

The writing prompts below can be used in many different ways. They're great to use as a morning warm-up, or you could make a menu to let your young writers pick one topic to focus on for their writing. You could even cut them out and put them in plastic Easter eggs and have students write about a random prompt! 

Whatever you choose, they'll be a great way to build excitement for Easter!

Sentence Writing Tips for Kindergarten

It's a good idea to set some reasonable expectations here. Some of your kindergarten students may be able to write a complete sentence on their own, but most students will need quite a bit of modelling, scaffolding, and support.

  • Teach your students how to write complete sentences.
  • Allow them to practise their response orally before writing.
  • Model writing complete sentences with the whole class.
  • Offer sentence starters to set up their answers
  • Provide a list of words or a word bank to help them spell.
  • Show templates of different writing styles (like writing a letter or prayer).
  • Practise in small groups to offer 1:1 support.
  • Allow for visuals. Many kids at this age will need to balance written words with illustrations.
  • Consider writing the child's responses for them if needed.
  • Create a writing center with plenty of lined paper, a word bank, and any other resources they may need.
  • Model the writing process! Use this sentence editing checklist to help them make sure their writing is complete.
