Pinner said, "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."

8 whole class journals for the students to write in. Select 8 students each week to write in one of the journals. The next week, 8 different children will be selected to write, and so on. By the time were finished, each journal should have about 25 different entries written in them. Students will be able to read what their classmates have written as well.

Whole Class Writing Journals - Each journal has a different topic with a copy of the class list on the inside of the front cover.  The students can also read the journals at a different time. Would also be a good 'I'm finished early' activity.
