My rule of thumb for grade one is:

I have my students do rough copies in their notebooks first and then good copies on the templates provided. I copy the templates onto different coloured paper for each month that I have prepped for the whole year before school begins - makes life easier. I post them on the bulletin board as each student is finished! Voila - journal writing for the year.
