This is a collection of April Journals with Directed Drawings to help students in Grades 1-3 be successful at both drawing and writing. They work great as a writing center, as a class monthly journal activity or for early finishers. The directed drawings give students direction and challenge them to draw new things. This one features a more complex word bank with Nouns, Adjectives and Verbs to go along with each page. These word banks help students continue to grow their vocabulary, guide them in their spelling and offer them direction in their writing! These are perfect for April writing, focusing on Spring, Easter and Earth Day.
April themes are: Easter Bunny, Basket of Eggs, Chick Hatching, Dragonfly, Snail, Frog, Plant growing, Kite and Bicycle.
5 Versions: Dotted or Thin Lines with or without a title, and a half page version for those who would like to cut and past the drawing prompt into a student notebook.
