Daily journal writing is very important for developing writers. I create a fun journal for my students to use, every month. I allow as much creativity as possible and always encourage inventive spelling, however, some of my students always need a visual. For that reason, I include a vocabulary page that can be incorporated into the journal. This is also helpful in giving my students ideas and motivation to write!
Here's what's included!
August- cover & beach words, school words
September- cover & school words, apple words
October- cover & Fall words, Halloween words, fire safety words
November- cover & Fall words, Thanksgiving words
December- cover & Christmas words, Hanukkah words
January- cover & Winter words
February- cover & Valentine's Day words, Presidents' Day words, dental health words
March- cover & St. Patrick's' Day words, weather words
April- cover & Spring words, Earth Day words, farm animals
May- cover & garden words, bugs, Mother's Day
June- cover & barbecue words, camping words, Father's Day words
July- cover & 4th of July words, pool words, sea animals
I also included 3 general journal covers if you aren't able to change out the covers each month. They read:
