Do your kids come in from the weekend chattier than usual? I can hardly get through our morning meeting sometimes because they are so chatty! I've created this Chitter Chatter Journal to use with my first graders. There are 36 journal prompts (on half pages). I've included a lined version and an unlined version. I will bind these with a comb binder and students will answer one journal prompt each Monday morning. Then, we will pair and share during morning meeting and chat up a storm about a designated topic. Or, you can let students share with the whole class. Any excuse to get your kiddos writing! There is one journal prompt for each week. Please download the preview for a peek at the layout of journals. In case you want to have Chitter Chatter but not make journals, I've also included the questions on cards that can be printed on cardstock and hung on a ring clip.
