Create a writing journal for your students for the month of December! This download includes two different cover pages to choose from. One is a Christmas Tree; the other is a Gingerbread Man. I have also included a blank cover page if you would choose to have the students draw their own cover if you would prefer to add your own picture. There are also 20 writing topics, plus the lined pages for writing. (For this month, there are some journal topics that reference Christmas or Santa). The teacher provides the students with one of the included journal topics. The students glue to topic to the top of the page, write about the topic, and draw a picture in the box to match what was written. This can be used to help students answer questions in complete sentences!
