With our district's push towards non-fiction writing my students rarely have time to free write anymore, but when they do they love using these journals!! Each month they can't wait to see their new free writing journal. Even my parents tell me how much their child loves writing in them at home!

On  August 26, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Hi Rachelle,
I purchased Journals Through the Year to use in my classroom this year, but I have moved into the Middle School this year and won't be using it there. May I give my copy to my coworker in the elementary school or must another license be purchased?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 26, 2013Rachelle Smith  answered:
Since you won't be using it and she will, you can go ahead and give it to her. Thanks for your honesty!
On  July 25, 2013Evangelina Almaraz Walker (TpT Seller) asked:
Rachelle, do you use regular spiral notebooks for their journaling? And if so, do you replace the journal cover every month with a new one? Or do the journal covers get glued inside the notebook? Sorry, I was just wondering how you went about this?
Thank you!

What is a journal share rubric?

The students share what they wrote in their journal in front of the class. Then, you fill out a rubric based on how they presented their journal. Hope that helps!
