Now that Common Core is in place, there is more time for students to work on improving their own writing. During workshops (Daily 5, writing workshops, etc), students will have the perfect opportunity to express their thinking with journal entries!
Use this sheet, punch holes in the side, and place it in their writing folders. These folders can be guides to "What shoul I do?" questioners and students who finish their writing projects early. The questions/writing prompts on this sheet accommodate for higher level thinking (suppository questioning, comparison writing, etc.).
Look for spring and summer journal writing sheets to come soon!
