Here's a simple 1-page journal for music students to use after having practiced. When students produce a written reflection of their practice sessions it helps them to pick up where they left off for the following session (we call this efficient practicing).
Then when they walk into their lesson, the teacher can briefly skim through these journal entries to get an idea of how the student practiced that week.
I instruct my students to write something each session. It can be one sentence or a whole paragraph, as long as it reflects how their practicing went. You can also use the Music Journal Helper sheet that includes reflection questions and music related terms to give students some ideas of what to write.
Use this alongside the Weekly Lesson Goals for String Students, Lesson Review, and Music Journal Helper.
