This is a very cute packet! It has plenty of great material. One thing I noticed though was that several of the pages are repeated.

Thanks for your positive comments! The pages that are repeated include U.K English spellings/grammar so that this packet can be used more universally by teachers around the world. :)

I did something similar when I student taught as many of the staff were always negative to the students. I love your graphics and the ready made open ended writing suggestions.
Thanks!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  July 10, 2013,  Christine B. asked:
Hi- Just wondering if al of the writing prompts are presented in "strip" style as shown in the sample - with the idea of each student having a copy & gluing in the notebook?
Thanks- Chris :)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 10, 2013Michelle Walker answered:
Hi, Chris!
Yes, the prompts are all "strip" style and the idea would be that the students have a notebook to use as their journal. There are roughly 120 different prompts. Also included in this packet are the full page prompts from my 'Sunflower Journals Back-to-School Freebie', as well as Science themed worksheets (also full page) about germinating and caring for a sunflower plant.
Hope this helps you!
Regards
Michelle :)
