Here is a FREE letter to send home in the beginning of the year when students are to decorate their writer's notebooks! The letter is very explicit with great writer's notebooks decorating ideas as well as what to put over the notebooks to keep them protected.
Having children decorate their writer's notebooks allows students to generate ideas for writing stories and filling up their notebooks with a lot of writing! Students can look at a picture that they put on their writer's notebook and write a personal narrative or story about that memory.
Enjoy! More Teacher Pay Teacher products to come! :)
