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.
