Writing can be a difficult task, these Whole Class Journals engage the students in the writing process in a less intimidating. Shake up your center times by adding this my set #4 of Whole Class Journal prompts that are geared towards expository and informative writing This is a great addition to any writers workshop, Center Time or for fast finishers. Each student in the class has a chance to respond to the topic and read what their peers have to say. It is a great community building piece that will work in any 3rd-6th grade classroom.
This pack includes 10 different topics that will help your students practice explaining how to do something and give information. In addition, there is mind map to help students plan and a student cheat sheet to help them get started. The topics that I have created are structured and worded in a way that will help the student work independently and come out with a product that is well executed and well written!

I have made 4 other sets of Whole Class Journals to help cover all genres in writing, which will better prepare your students for State and District writing tests as well as make them more well rounded authors. Check out my other whole journals here:
