Engaging journal writing prompts - students will enjoy the variety of writing prompts and teachers love the time saving process

Each monthly set includes prompt cards, a calendar page, writing papers, rubrics, covers, and checklists. You can customize your journal setup for the month or for a week at a time.

Students will enjoy expressing their creativity through their writing, and you can choose to include pictures along with the writing.

Students become accustomed to writing in paragraph form

Encourage your students to write with a topic sentence, three detail sentences, and a summary sentence – a total of five complete sentences in each paragraph.

Your students will love personalizing the cover if you choose to use one.

With the bundle, you can assemble the journals by week, month, or even the entire year. I generally created monthly journals that students could work on during morning time or downtime.
