Here are journal covers for each month of the year. Each cover is the same except for the image in the background. Each month, the student has to write his/her name on the cover. Color the picture.
Also included are starter words for each month's journal. There are 21 words for each month. All of the words pertain to that month's theme/holiday. If they use that word, they can cross it out. That way they're not reusing the same word.
Staple January's cover page and starter word page to a bunch of cheap lined paper. Do the same for February, March, and so on. Each page should have it's own bundle. At the end of the month, send it home.
