The students write about each month of school and what they did. This is an excellent way to show the improvements they make in their writing to parents and for them to look back at the end of the year to see everything they have done. The students can either draw a picture that goes along with the month or you can print pictures from what you have done. I add construction paper to them to decorate them as a border when they are completed. This is a great way to have a year-long writing project.
