This journal has a dual purpose: to help kids learn their sight words and to develop their skills as beginning writers.
This journal contains 21 engaging prompts centered around what your students know best: themselves! With lines for students to practice their sight words, pictures to help spur your students' imagination, and a simple editing check-off list on each page, this journal was created to be a fun and effective way to introduce the writing process to children!
Even if students know the sight words featured in this journal, incorporation of the words into their writing will reinforce their knowledge!
Each journal begins with a dictionary of words children frequently use in their writing to help your beginning writers feel successful. It contains all sight words, color words, and numbers. Each journal also includes a page of blank lines for students to record and feel ownership of additional words they want to remember.
The pages are formatted to print with a generous left margin for stapling or binding.
This journal is the first in a set of six. All six are also available in a bundle.
