I have used these journals in different ways. They are great for morning work, and more recently, I am using them as writer’s workshop journals. I use the front cover as a free day at the beginning of every month to color! I choose my writing paper depending on my students’ needs and time of year (5 types of paper are included or you can use your own favorite). I copy these front and back with 20 days of writing paper and double staple to form a book. I also keep the first month journal and send it home with the last journal of the year with a note to parents to show individual growth. The note is attached as well!
Easy to manage and easy to plan!
