We wanted to focus on the alphabet at the beginning of the year. This Literacy Journal has only one page of concepts unlike all our other journals. Since there are 26 pages you will need to double up the pages and/or start in August if you start that early.
We bought cheap 1 inch vinyl binders last summer. We use these for Literacy Journal and Calendar Journal. We copy a months worth of both and put them in the binder at the beginning of each month with a divider in between Literacy Journal and Calendar Journal.
Copy the literacy journal pages as 2 sided. The calendar journal is copied front and back for the amount of days in the month.
After unpacking in the morning, students will get out their journal and work on the next literacy page in the packet. You can check quickly as they finish.Please let us know if you have any questions!
