This is a news journal that I created to motivate students to reflect upon their school day and also communicate with parents daily. I make a spiral bound journal for each student every quarter. The students write the number of days in school, the date, what they did in school, and color the apple that corresponds to the behavior color they were on that day. I may choose to use the teacher comments section to let parents know about student behavior or successes. Students write in the journal at the end of the day and take it home for their parents to sign and return. This journal keeps parents informed and encourages discussions at home about school. I provided a title page without quarters in case you would rather not use them or your school uses trimesters.
