Add to your Safari-theme classroom with this daily writing journal. There are writing prompts for Monday - Friday. Prompts are completely editable so you can mix it up… or even have a week where students answer their own questions to put them "in control" of their own learning.
The PowerPoint version is for traditional printable materials. It has a lined area on each page for student entries. In addition, there is an image of primary paper that you can copy onto each page so even the little students have an easy time expressing themselves.
The Google Slides version can be used as an online activity. Each page has a designated, clickable area for students to type their answers. Create copies so students have new journals every week. After a few weeks, your students can turn their journal slides into a presentation portfolio to showcase how much they have improved.
The Google Slides link is provided on the Other Information page at the end of the downloaded PowerPoint presentation.
Each version has a page at the end for a send-home reading log. You can use it separately or include with the journal if students are also expected to write at home.
