I am so excited about this journal! It has been a great way to teach my students both how to read and write their sight words as well as how to write sentences. Kids love to draw and what better way to inspire writing than a step by step draw and write activity? Students learn the basics of beginning sentence writing including: capitalizing words, adding spaces between words, spelling, and using punctuation marks. Kids create creative artwork to display their writing journal pages. They shine as they fluently read their writing using a partner share, to the whole class, or to their family at home.
