Use these journal writing frames to help young students create classroom books. Choose one of the templates and photocopy it so that each student has a copy. Start with a mini-lesson to introduce and discuss the topic, generate ideas and create a word list. Follow with a whole or small group time for students to complete their writing. Some students may require support in completing the writing part of the frame. When all are completed hole punch the left side, Copy the cover sheet that goes with the topic on tagboard or construction paper. Add the cover sheet and a plain back cover page and use brads to secure. These books will provide good reading practice for your students with the repetitive texts and they will enjoy seeing their own work displayed in classroom books!
