This resource was designed to reinforce the developing writing in the primary grades. Primary writers begin with basic sentences and a supportive picture. However as the weeks and months go by, their writing begins to include a specific topic and/or main idea, more details, and describing words. The journal pages are to designed to help foster that developing writer. The lines on the first journal pages are wider and there are less of them. As the journal progresses, the lines get narrower and there are more and more lines on a page.
