This is a great resource to have in your classroom for early finishers during your writing block. Cut and paste each Journal topic onto the front of a notebook (I use spiral and it works well!) Stash them away in a place where students know they can find them easily. They can write their response as a journal entry. They vary in genre from fiction, non-fiction, and opinion. It's a great way for students to express their voice and allow others to read their work.
