This is a good way to get your students to write over the winter / holiday break. It includes six days of journal writing, a favorite memory page, and a writing choice page. Each journal page starts with “On the __ day of winter break I…” The last pages are for their favorite memory and writing choice. There is room at the top for a picture on each page.
The journal includes a NICE Not Naughty list writing pass where the students can write down something nice they did and skip writing in their journal for up to two days. The students still need to write what they did that was nice, but it is a much smaller writing piece, plus it encourages them to do something nice. My students enjoy doing this over break and then sharing it after break. I am sure your students will too!
