Build your own cross-curricular writing journals to last the entire school year! 12 months included!
*** Common Core Aligned ***
"My Planning Workspace" is included so students start with pre-writing. Then, students identify their Common Core writing standards by circling which type of writing their piece reflects (Opinion W.1, Informative/Explanatory W.2, or Narrative W.3). Personal word banks and word walls make it easier for students to write independently.
Students, parents, teachers, and administration will be able to tell which form of writing you are working on. You can copy the journal pages back to back and staple them with the monthly cover. Or you can simply copy different pages for different levels of writing skills depending on the needs of your students.
This set includes:
• 4 covers each month of the year (January-December)
• Word banks for each month (color and black and white)
• Blank word bank for writing across the curriculum
• Pre-primer - 2nd Grade Personal Word Walls (Editable) &
blank personal word wall
• A VARIETY of writing papers included (no lines, lines, every other line, illustration, no illustration, etc.)
• All covers come in full color, black and white, creative
expression pages, and coloring pages
• Ideas page included!
MIX & MATCH: Copy the cover of your choice with a word bank or personal word wall on the inside or back cover. Add more lines each month and watch your writers bloom!
GET STUDENTS INVOLVED: Let students take part in assembling the journal of their choice with their favorite monthly cover and writing pages. Some students may be ready for two writing lines while others are ready for six.
CROSS-CURRICULAR: These journals can be used across the curriculum as science, writing, math, or social studies journals.
You might also love our writing workshop song to get students focused on writing. This transitional song can be played while students get out their writing supplies and meet you up front for a mini-lesson. Then when you send them back their supplies are already out and they are ready to go!
