This product includes the directions, rubrics, and parent letters of kindergarten journals for the entire the school year (August/Septmeber through May/June). It also includes the paper I use in the student journals for each. The first journal gets students used to their routine. They start with name, date, and picture then move to labeling. The rubric explains to parents exactly what skills are taught and displayed in their child's journals. Each month focuses on new skills. These journals will take your students' from prewriting and pictures to elkonin "sound boxes" all the way through simple paragraphs and short stories by the end of the year.
