Get your students off to the "write" start this school year with daily journal writing! This packet is designed to be used during the entire first week or two weeks of the school year while your students settle in and you get to know each other.
48 writing prompt cards provide your students with engaging journal topics which can give you insight into who your students are. Students can read their journal entries aloud and share with the class, as you feel appropriate. You can also respond to them personally in their journals.
Prompt cards are divided into three categories:
--Looking Forward to a New School Year
Please refer to the free preview download for sample writing prompts.
A journal cover is also provided along with three different designs of writing paper. Lined notebook paper may also be used.
Ideas for use:
--Create a journal with the cover print out and copies of the writing paper (after you have determined the number of days you will be using the prompts). Simply staple pages together.
--Use a three-prong pocket folder. Attach either notebook paper or printed writing paper into the prongs (either before or as journal assignments are given). Print the journal cover and attach to the cover of the folder using a glue stick, tape, or stapler.
--Use the spiral or composition notebook that your students will be using throughout the year for their daily journal writing. Print the journal cover and attach to the first page of the notebook, designating the first pages as the back to school section of their journal.
The entire packet is provided in bright, full color. Master copies of the journal cover and writing pages are available in gray scale, if that is preferred. The writing prompt cards also print well when you set your printer to the gray scale setting. It is recommended to laminate the prompt cards for multiple uses.
Have a great first week of school!
