Learn At Home - Distance Learning - Journal Writing - Authentic Writing Experience. Assign this at home writing journal to your students so they maintain their writing skills and continue their literacy practice. This is an engaging writing activity. Students will choose from "topic squares" and write about topics and events when they happen. These writing topic squares can be used in the at home journal booklet you create with these cover pages and inside journal pages or you can also use the topic squares to assign with a composition notebook. Choose the pages you like and keep your students writing.

Students are directed to cut out the topic square as events at home unfold, paste it in their booklet or composition notebook; write the date, write about the topic; reread their writing to correct any mistakes. This at home journal can be a great way to encourage writing at home.

Pages Include:

  1. 3 pages of 'topic squares' or 'writing prompt stamps'
  2. 1 page where students can design their own topic square
  3. Cover [2 designs]
