This Expository Journal format is an excellent way to begin teaching expository writing. It is in cloze format and closely guides children on how to include the important parts of expository writing. I have used this to begin my unit and continue with these as morning work and homework for reinforcement. After a little while, I use a less formatted writing form (in my journal pack) and it is amazing to see how the children have learned to write!
If you find this page helpful, I have an Expository Journal Writing Pack that has 13 more writing prompts to go along with this one. Just visit my store:)
