JOURNAL WRITING FOR A FULL SCHOOL YEAR!
My Writing Journeys-Junior Grades is suitable for students in Grades 4-6.
"Nice scaffolding with graphic organizers and word banks!" (feedback)
An excellent accompaniment to the Daily 5 Program!
Cross-curricular topics too!
Includes a variety of "writing forms"
This writing journal book is user friendly and it could be used in many different ways.
Some teachers are using the journal as a daily morning warm up or part of their existing language program.
Includes "word wall" words for each activity. Great for word study.
Some topics/activities could be linked to Health, Science and Visual Arts

an "All About Me" page, perfect for the beginning of the year!
an Autograph page and a Class Picture page, perfect for the end of the year!
Some other ideas are:
-Use the first page of each activity as a class brainstorm.
-Draw the graphic organizer on the board or chart paper and have students copy the ideas on their page in the book.
-Instead of writing the ideas on the graphic organizer, they could draw them instead.
-Use the vocabulary words on the bottom of each page as word wall
words or to initiate discussion about the topic.
-Students could also write sentences using these vocabulary words.
-The second page (the drawing section) of each topic could be taken "outside the book". For example, have students do a cut and paste using construction paper, or create a scene in a box.
-Each Topic could be spread out on 2-3 different days.
We also have the U.S. Version, check it out, click below.
