Call To Action

Teaching writer's workshop that's developmentally appropriate 

without the tears and frustration.


Have you been told to have your students "go off and write" but it is just NOT working?

Let me guess - you’ve been told to have your students “go off and write” but when you do you have 20 hands in the air, some are crying and others ended up leaving their paper completely blank?

I’ve been there too.

And what I quickly realized is that we need to explicitly model not only the writing process but HOW to write in kindergarten.

Can you imagine...

  • You have confident writers who are actually excited to have writers workshop everyday
  • Your students KNOW what to do each day because you have explicitly model HOW to write within each mini lesson
  • You are able to easily differentiate and meet the needs of all learners - without having students waiting for your assistance
  • Writing is everyone's favorite time of the day

That’s why I can't wait to introduce you to Roadmap to Writers Workshop!!

I’ve been told to have students "go off and write" before and it is SO difficult.

Explicit instruction of how to draw, label and write a sentence is CRUCIAL in kindergarten so that they are given the tools to become independent and confident writers.

We know we need to do more than just "give books to kids and they'll learn how to read" and the same thing goes with writing. We cannot expect students to know how to write by giving them a pencil and paper. 

And it starts with…


Modeling HOW to draw with shapes, using colors and telling stories with pictures only.


Writing the first sound of a word and progressing to all the sounds they hear with phonetic spelling.

Sentence Structure

Explicit instruction of the components of a sentence.

If you're ready to achieve writing success 


So what if I told you…

You will never have to say the words "go off and write" again because you will be explicitly modeling to your students HOW to write.

Independent Writers

Your students will know exactly what to do because of your explicit instruction.

Differentiation for all learners

You will understand how to teach the same genre of writing but give students the differentiation they individually need.

High Quality Work

Your students will go through the writing process slowly.


If you're ready to go from feeling frustrated by outdated writing approaches, but you need someone who's been-there-done-that to guide you...

I created something just for you!


A self-paced Writers Workshop training that teaches you step by step how to create confident writers in a developmentally appropriate way.


“This was a game changer for my entire writing block!”

Our expensive curriculum is lacking in the writing department. This course and writing curriculum is written with the explicit directions that beginning writers need. This entire course is so thorough and realistic. I feel so much more confident using it to teach writing to my Kinders this year!

Hi! I’m Amanda from That Kinder Mama.

Amanda is the founder of ThatKinderMama. When she first started teaching kindergarten, she quickly realized the "go off and write" approach was NOT developmentally appropriate.

She ended up create her own writing curriculum and has helped over 10,000 teachers ditch the script, slow down and teach writing in a way that makes SENSE.

Are you ready to start teaching writing in a developmentally appropriate way?


“A kindergarten must-have!”

One of my favorite resources I've found. I love everything ThatKinderMama offers. The writing units provide easy to follow lesson plans and all the anchor chart and templates that you need. It is easy to follow, low prep time AND engaging for students. Highly recommend.

“Worth every penny!”

The curriculum our district adapted does not have a strong, engaging writing block. This course has helped us fill the gap and develop independent writers in kindergarten!
