Are you looking for a way to keep your students writing on a regular basis outside of Writer's Workshop? This Month by Month Weekly Writing Journal can be used to inspire and encourage children to think and write creatively through the use of story starters and prompts. Included in this packet are four different prompts/story starters per month. Assign a new page each week and encourage the children to work on them when they have finished an assignment and are wondering "What should I do quietly while I wait for my peers to finish?" At the end of each week, share their writing pieces as a class or in small groups. Through sharing ideas among peers, you will be amazed as you witness how creative juices begin to flow and imagination is sparked. At the end of the school year it is truly rewarding to see their growth as creative thinkers and writers. This journal is sure to be a treasure that parents or guardians will hold on to. This packet contains writing prompts for all 12 months of the year to assure the children are offered writing practice even when school may not be in session. (Some traditional American Holidays may be alluded to in some of the prompts such as Independence Day, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, President's Day, Earth Day, Ground Hog's Day, Thanksgiving, etc.)
