Six super cute journal covers to create writing journals for every season of the year. Copy journal covers and pages and staple or bind with comb binding. At the beginning of the year in kindergarten or preschool use 20 sheets of plain white paper in journals as many students are still drawing and dictating stories or labeling pictures with one or two letter sounds. In winter, spring and summer journals use lined pages with space for illustrations at the top to guide writing direction and letter size.
Copy the “Words I Can Read and Write” book, staple and cut in half to make two little books for students to keep with journals. At the beginning of the year students can write names of classmates on pages according the first letter and continue to add words monthly as a reference for writing throughout the year! The book contains 65 sight words from the Dolch Pre-Primer and Primer word list.
