This complete journal includes:
4 cover pages in color and 1 in black and white.
61 journal pages with prompts and a large handwriting line.
1 blank journal page to add your own prompts if you wish.
-Each journal page includes space for the child to print their name, and to write their journal response at the bottom of the page there is space to draw a picture to represent their response.
Journal topics include:
My favorite things. There are 19 prompts to inquire about a child’s interests and favorite things. For example favorite book, color, things to do outside, at school, etc.
My feelings. There are 5 journal prompts to explore a child’s feelings of being frustrated, happy, mad, sad and scared.
Let’s explore with opposites. These 10 prompts are done in sets of two to allow children to see the differences in opposites. Naming something that is hot, and for the next journal entry something that is cold.
It’s time to rhyme. In these 4 prompts, the child will name a word that rhymes with the word in the prompt. (My children like to draw silly pictures of the two rhyming words).
My five senses. There are 5 journal pages one for each sense, hear, see, smell, taste and touch.
Let’s get creative with colors and shapes. There are 8 journal prompts in color and the same 8 in black and white to go with the color and shape pages. Each poses the question what can be made with a shape of a certain color. For example with one red circle I can make… (a balloon, a pepperoni, a clown nose…)
Basic vocabulary about author and illustrator. There are 2 pages to pose the question if you were an author what would you write about? If you were an illustrator what would you draw?
This journal is ready for you. Just print, bind, staple or add to a three ring binder and you are set. I have used this journal with three, four, five and six year old children. I hope you enjoy it. For personal and classroom use only.
