April Journal Prompts
These adorable journal prompts are a great way to get your students motivated in writing everyday. There is a topic for each day in April. This set includes topics for spring weather, April Fools Day and the farm and farm animals! You can use them as morning work, as a writing center activity, for early finishers, or perhaps for homework. I use marble notebooks for my students and have them glue them in their notebooks. Each day they have to complete a journal prompt after they arrive. It is a part of our morning routine.
