My students last year loved having whole class journals to write in. They had a chance to write in them during Work on Writing, and a chance to read them during Read to Self. I made up a new set of 8. At the moment they are pretty plain covers, but once a student writes in it they have the option of choosing a sticker from my collection to place on the front cover. The stickers show me how many kids have tackled each topic.
Whole class journals..each student can write in them on a certain topic and the class can read them at different time.
Template to create writing offices for students. The students have these offices available when they are writing.
