A word journal is a personal word wall for each individual student. This word journal includes the first 1,000 Fry sight words in alphabetical order. The word journal is a student friendly reference that is used during independent writing. Words that are included in the journal are expected to be spelled correctly in each independent writing sample. When students learn new words, they can add them to their journal.
I've seen similar products online and have used them with my younger students. I have students in middle school that struggle significantly with spelling and needed a similar resource, but everything I found was created for younger students. My journal was created with my older students in mind. I wanted to include as many words as I could, so I included all 1,000 of the Frys sight words. I wanted to keep the design simple and without clip art so that it would appeal to older students.
