This unit contains 30 journal prompts connected to the Journeys First Grade Reading Program (2014 Common Core Edition). Each page contains a comment or question for students to respond to and elaborate on. The student is asked to respond in writing, using appropriate conventions, complete sentences and good spacing. These pages can be stapled together in groups of five, so that each set corresponds to the five stories in each book. They can be used at conference time to discuss writing with students and parents. It can then be placed in a Writing Portfolio. You will be amazed to see the clear growth over time. If you wish, students can draw a picture on the back, or on a blank page. They can also be used in small groups for Author's Chair sharing. This unit will quickly become an important weekly activity to use during your reading workshop time.
There is a 2013 Edition of Journeys Journal Prompts also available.
