I use these as a daily warm-up activities for my students. Depending upon your level of student, these can take anywhere from 15-20 minutes each.
These can also be used a content reading and writing practice in your classroom. There are some pages specifically designated to address paragraph and essay development. While all of my Daily Journal packets include “Writing Skills Practice” pages that are essentially the same, I did change the writing prompts in each packet to reflect content specific themes.
I also use these daily journals as unit review or final exam review activities. The read
ing passages review content and the reading questions help students develop key test taking skills, particularly for test items which include a stimulus. There are also questions to help students to think about how content is relevant beyond the classroom.
There is no key for these handouts because most of the questions are open-ended and could have numerous responses.
