Looking to add purposeful journal writing into your classroom? This comes with 24 total weeks of response questions for students to write about. I used in in conjunction with the forty book challenge in my fourth grade classroom. The students became focused writers that also learned important reading strategies and vocabulary terms along the way. Weeks 1-4 are the same question as well as weeks 5-8. This is for students to get in the HABIT of writing and learning how to answer each specific part of the journal entry as they go. You can have students respond on their own, in small groups, as a class, with a pen pal, etc. It helped me check on each student as they were doing their forty book challenge as well.
