Product Description
Looking for a structured and FLEXIBLE year-long writing program for kindergarten or first grade? This is a BUNDLE of my print and go writing journals! Each journal pack focuses on specific writing goals and includes new vocabulary that is accessible for students to use in their writing! Each journal page asks the student to reflect, in a very kid-friendly way, on how well they met the writing goals. This pack was created for a kindergarten classroom but could be used in a first grade classroom too!

Packs included in this bundle:
August and September: Adding Labels
October: Letter Formation and Beginning Sounds

March: Writing About a Location or Topic

❤️Each month's pack is tailored to support the writing development of a typical kindergartener at each month in the year. For example, September's journal (labeling, one line for writing, etc.) looks much different from April's journal (4 lines, 4 goals). My goal in creating these journals was to best support my students at each stage in their writing development.

❤️Each of my monthly packs includes some combination of the following:
-journal pages containing themed writing prompts w/ different pictorial vocabulary (either presented on each page or in a printable picture spelling dictionary depending on the month)
-goal posters (to align with the goals at the bottom of each journal page)
-a monthly cover (plus a cover without a month's name for flexibility of use)
-a writing stamina page (to graph writing stamina progress)

NEW OPTION: An additional dotted line (head, middle, and foot writing lines) version of the journal pages has been added to ALL packs!
