This journal serves as a great tool for an overall writing sample to document and celebrate each child’s growth during and throughout the year.
This journal will work great for:
*Ongoing Informal Assessment and Instructional Planning
*Data or Instructional Support Meetings
*Building confidence, setting goals, and celebrating the growth in each child’s work (children need to see and hear how great they are doing and how they have grown!)
This packet includes everything that you need to use these journals:
*Instructions on how to use and make the journals
*Writing Prompt Cards for every month (each month comes with 3 suggested writing prompts and there is a blank page for you to make up your own)
*3 Covers to Choose From
*Journal Writing Pages (Name Page; Pages for all 12 months; First Day of School, Last Day of School, and Summer Pages; a Blank Writing page)
*Writing Growth and Goals Conferencing Sheet
*End of Year Letter Home to Parents (to send home with the journal)
