Class journals are great way to give students an audience other than the teacher to write to. Students not only use class journals to practice writing, they are able to read what their classmates have written.
There are four writing genres:
- Fictional Narrative
- Personal Narrative
Each genre has 10 different topics.
I use these journals as part of the “Work on Writing” portion of Daily 5. However, they are the perfect addition to any writing center/workstation. They also make great early finisher activities.
