Workstations can be A LOT of work! These whole class journals are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for writing and are low maintenance workstation materials. Students will get to practice narrative, opinion, informative, reader's response, friendly letter and more! Place a handful of these journals into a tub or in a drawer with the rules poster and you've got a writing station!
Whole class journals make wonderful work stations or fast finisher activities. The prompt is glued down to the cover of a notebook or slipped into the front pocket of a three ring binder. Students then take turns responding to the prompt. A short rubric as well as rules poster and half page (to be glued inside the notebook) of rules is included for student accountability.
The colorful covers and fun graphics grab student attention and make them interested in the prompt. The journals become a wonderful community piece. With 23 prompts, including three for each season, students will never get bored with a topic. Build student excitement and engagement by debuting new journals each season!
