Here is how we use this:
We bought cheap 1 inch vinyl binders last summer. We use these for Literacy Journal and Calendar Journal. We copy a months worth of both and put them in the binder at the beginning of each month with a divider in between Literacy Journal and Calendar Journal.
Literacy Journal has 2 different pages included in this packet. We couldn’t get everything we wanted to cover on one page so we have 2 pages that can be alternated. Page 3 is our January Calendar Journal. We copy this one page (make it 2 sided) for each student- for each school day of the month. We do this page as a group during calendar time every day,
After unpacking in the morning, students will get out their journal and work on the next literacy page in the packet. You can check quickly as they finish.Please let us know if you have any questions!
