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. Back then those plain pieces of paper worked on my journals, but nowadays I want to use clip art to make them more engaging for my students, while still maintaining a "low ink solution".
15 covers are included in this product, 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. You can also print them 2 per page to maximize your paper and ink.

Thank you to MelonHeadz Illustrating for her adorable clip art.
Please check out the preview to see everything that is included.
In my store, I also have a "Set 2" of my Whole Class Writing Journals that contains 25 different covers.
If you are just looking for Math Covers - I have 6 available as well in a separate product (also included in Set 2).
If you would like to purchase a bundle of both Set 1 and Set 2, the bundle is now available in my store. The bundle will save you 20% off the cost of both items.
Please visit my blog to see how I use these in my own classroom.
