This October Writing Journal is best suited for kindergarten and first grade. Each page is differentiated. Included is also a coloring rubric, coloring rubric checklist, writing rubric and writing rubric checklist. For the second month of school, I will use this as a way to monitor fine motor skills - coloring inside the lines and tracing the lines. The blank journal is used as a free-write entry task. I will also use this with my ESL students throughout the beginning of the year to help differentiate.
(NOTE: that PREVIEW is a little BLURRY; this is because the resolution needed to be lower for the preview - actual product is crisp). For a more crisp preview, please visit:
