I have always found journals SO useful in my classroom. We can always pull them out for any type of writing prompt, and they're available as an activity in moments of crisis.

Because many students struggle with more free prompts, I've developed some systems for giving them inspiration. These two printable cover inserts provide two different types of springboards for students - direct prompts and a mix-n-match creative writing menu.

By printing these out and having students glue them inside their journal covers at the beginning of the year, you put a system in place that makes the rest of the year's writing much smoother.
