This product originated as an idea I had to help one of my students in my science class to focus on the lesson and take responsibility of her learning.
The student believed she was no good at science, and hence stopped trying. She'd come to my class and often did what she wanted, which resulted in her being sent out of the room.
I created this journal half way through the first semester to get her back on focus and motivate her to succeed.
It was originally created as a science journal with inspirational quotes from famous scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. The original journal was very science specific with science facts based around the topics I was teaching at the time.
This product is a recreation of the original journal that can be used in any curriculum area throughout the school year.
The product is designed to be used for the entire school year. The Preview attached has details of how you could use this in the classroom.
There are 40 weeks (160 pages).
This product is a reflective journal.
Students are encouraged to write each day about their lesson, and what they have learned – including words and phrases – they learn each day in class.
They then reflect on the week and how they performed.
The teacher then collect the week’s reflections and write comments to help and motivate the student.
If you purchase this product, and use it with individual students or with the whole class, please let me know how it went and how you and your students benefited.
