This packet includes a writing journal for EACH MONTH of the school year. The page with the name of the month should be at the beginning of each months packet. Then there are 2 sheets with ideas for writing prompts. You can make a bunch of copies of it and either make sure the students keep their checklist when they get a new journal, or you can make extra copies and put a new one in for each month. ANOTHER option is to make your own prompts! Then there are 4 pages of paper for the students to respond on. There is a blank box at the top for students to draw a picture of their entry (if time). If you are doing this with older grades, you can take out the picture boxes. I have my students do 1 entry a week (which is why there are 4 pages per month). IT is a WONDERFUL way to see how their writing changes and improves throughout the year/months and a wonderful way to practice writing.
