This is a document I created so my students could record great examples of literature for the mini lessons I am teaching. This can be used with picture books or a chapter book that you are using for a read aloud. This is a great tool at the middle and end of the year because students will have a reference to each mini lesson and the book that it refers to. They then have a resource they can use while either writing or reading. They can also take this to the next grade!
I’ve been using this for the past 7 years and I love it!
Also, when I print this, I print it as a legal sized booklet. That way it truly does look like a journal. Just choose “booklet” in your printer settings and then choose “legal size” paper.
Student can also choose to decorate their cover if they prefer.
