PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

See the student diary by downloading the preview!

The diary has become one of the most popular reading genres in the classroom. This item was a direct result of student requests.

The diary can be used in many creative ways!

One idea is to use the diary near the end of the school day. Encourage children to write about their learning and social experiences - like an exit slip.

Students adore the book JUSTIN CASE, School, Drool, And Other Daily Disasters by Rachel Vail. This is the dairy of a lovable, worrywart third grader. It's a story of friendships, school fears, and MATH! This book is a perfect read aloud for inspiring diary writing. Read aloud one entry per day, prior to the students diary writing. Display the entry on the Smartboard. Discuss. Use Justin's diary as a mentor text. Student writing quickly grow!

The doodle illustrations, that accompany Justin's diary entries, are very detailed and hilarious!

Included:

Diary Writing Ideas Anchor Chart
The diary cover page
A writing checklist for students to mentally address at the completion of an entry
A writing Super Skills chart (SUPER COOL!) for growing writers
The diary student writing templates
Teacher directions for constructing the diary
