These writing journal covers are the perfect size for a composition notebook. They can be used to create shared writing journals for your students to use. Children can borrow the writing journal during Work on Writing to write a narrative, fairy tale, and/or expository piece. Children can re-read what other students have written, respond, and write their own journal entry. These journals encourage students to write following different writing formats taught in first grade. But could be used in several different grade levels.
