Journal writing topics can be a pain to come up with some days! Here are 24 topics, tailored to the month of January, to use for journal writing, centers, or morning seatwork. The set of topics are presented in two formats – 24 ½ sheet B&W blackline masters with room to write on each card. These are great for running off and cutting apart to use as morning seatwork or during the first 5 minutes of class while you take attendance, collect homework, etc. The second set has been laid out as 24 colorful task cards that can be printed, laminated, cut apart, and set out in a writing center or for free time work when your students finish early.
