This is a simple way to set up the use of "whole-class journals" in your classroom. I have created 16 journal prompts to get your students in the writing mood. I also added 4 blank covers (in case you want to create your own). All you have to do is print the covers, glue them onto a spiral notebook, and put them in a spot your students can easily access.
Cut and glue writing journal prompts
"What would you do if you found a pair of magical shoes?" "Write a story about a robot that does your homework." You can use these and create others for 101 writing prompts in a jar. Great way to get students started writing at the beginning of class.
