One of my favorite times during the school day is journal time! Not only is it a wonderful, authentic, and balanced approach to beginning literacy, I get to see and hear about my kiddos thoughts, ideas, and stories, which is so exciting!
Especially at a young age, though, students have trouble brainstorming, or coming up with things to draw/write about!
Whether you've never used prompts for journaling before and are looking to start or if your littles need some ideas to get their brains started, you've come to the right place!
This is a set of VISUAL journal prompts, geared for students in Pre-K or K. The written prompt is at the top of each page, so children can begin to match spoken words (you) with print or start to read the prompts to themselves! Each prompt is matched with pictures that will jumpstart ideas and help when a student is "stuck".
This set of prompts focuses on the letters of the alphabet, asking children to think about something that starts with each letter, perfect for a focus letter or letter-of-the-week program. There is one color and one black and white prompt for each letter of the alphabet.
