Shared Journals are great for your work on writing center. Just attach these labels to the front of marble or spiral notebooks and the children will enjoy writing about and/or responding to what others have written
. For example, in the ouch book, a child can write about a time he/she got hurt. Then, other children can read it and respond to it. The children can choose any topic that interests them! Remind the children to write the date for each entry they make, skip lines, and write neatly.
Shared Journals are great for fast finishers and homework too!
There are a total of 16 different labels...
⭐Toys and Games
⭐What's on your mind?
⭐That's so Funny
⭐Good for Me
⚠️There are two sets of labels included. Once set asks the students to draw a picture to match their words and the other set does not ask for a picture. Just choose the set you prefer.
