I created this journal to accompany Unit 2 of MacMillan/McGraw Hill for second grade. There are five stories included: The Tiny Seed, A Harbor Seal Pup Grows Up, A Trip to the Emergency Room, Farfallina and Marcel, and There's Nothing Like Baseball. The journal can be printed with all five stories together, or you can seperate them out individually. I've included a cover sheet(s) for either way. I've included 5 writing prompts for each story (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5.) I've also included a word brainstorming page to be completed before the students journal. I used to have my students complete these journaling activities in a spiral notebook, but I like the way this journal can easily be graded and sent home. It also includes picture prompts and helps students organize their writing. Please see the preview for an example of the Tiny Seed.
