Short writing activities incorporate cross curricular skills while allowing students to reflect and think about how they can improve their skills.
Directions, Journal Cover Page, and 12 response pages included. Copy the pages that are appropriate for your setting or needs. Some responses could be reflected upon multiple times throughout the year.
