This product includes 32 different covers of topics students can write about at home . Students select one journal per week to take home and work on. They then return it to school and share their writing with their group or the class. I print the covers in color, laminate, and then tape to the outside of a spiral or composition notebook. There is a checklist included with a place to write your student names and the date they take the journal. This will help you keep track of who has a particular spiral and what journal a student has already had. It's a great way for parents to see their student's writing and at the end of the year, each student can take one home.
