Product Description
I'm bundling these products to save you money! Bought together, you save 20%.

Why I started this:
Back in the Summer of 2012 I wrote up a blog post about using Whole Class Writing Journals in my classroom. I added a picture of my plain covers on my colored spiral notebooks laying on my carpet, and it took off - bringing over 143,000 people to the blog to read that one post. Scholastic even stepped in and posted my picture on their Facebook page. Those plain pieces of paper worked on my journals, but I wanted to use clip art to make them cute and more engaging, while still maintaining a "low ink solution".

What's included:
40 covers are included in this bundle, in addition to an idea of the directions I give my students for writing and reading in the journals. All you will have to do is print and glue these covers onto the front of a notebook of your choice. You could laminate them first before attaching, it might make it more durable - though regular glue lasted the entire year.

How I use them:
How I use them in my classroom is that each cover is glued onto the outside of the single spiral notebook. I then allow my students to write in them during our writing workshop time, and when they finish an activity early. They choose a topic and respond in that one journal, including their name to the top of their written work. During silent reading students are given the option of choosing a journal to read their classmate's writing, allowing our class to learn about each other. I believe these journals have brought my class closer together, building friendships, and allowing students to share about their stories and feelings about different topics.
