I was having difficulty being able to provide choice for my students during the "Writing" portion of Daily Five, while also ensuring their writing is of academic nature.
So, I created seven different "journals," each with their own topic, that the students choose from to write in each day. They write inside of the journal itself so that I only have seven places to look for their writing pieces during Daily Five, instead of twenty-one!
This journal's topic is "A Day in the Life of..." In this purchase you will be receiving the cover for the journal, as well as Writer's Rules on the next page. These rules are there for the students to use as a check to make sure that anything written in these journals is academic writing! They absolutely love the journals, it's so great to see them excited about writing!
Once you print off these two pages, you can add lined paper and bound them like a notebook!
I would like to thank http://www.mycutegraphics.com/ for the wonderful graphics that I used in these pieces!
