Journaling is an important tool for both students and teachers alike. Journaling allows students to practice their writing, find their voice and express their thoughts. It allows teachers a unique opportunity to get to know their students better and to pinpoint students’ strengths and needs. Use these journaling prompts to get your students writing! Prompts can be used by writing them on the board or alternately, you can create a ‘Journal Jar’ by cutting out prompts and putting them into a jar. You can have your students pull out a different journaling prompt each day.
