Hi all! Here is an idea journal that I have used with students in grades 3-5. The journal provides students with the opportunity to think about the qualities of good writing. The students have to think about using similes, onomatopoeia, alliteration, and creative character names. It's a great Back to School writing starter to get an idea what students already know and what they need help with!
