Here is a collection of journal cover pages. One for every month, starting with September. With spring break in March and other journaling activites, I found a 'spring' journal for March and April worked better. I also made a summer journal for the end of the year to encourage them to continue journaling over the summer.
Coloring the cover is a great morning work activity to have ready for them to do as they walk in. Later I assemble the journals with half blank and half lined paper, bound with a seasonal colored piece of construction paper behind it and stapled down the side. I will try to add a photo of an assembled journal soon. Enjoy!
