Explore Journal Jar, Journal Ideas, and more!

( have a student pick a diff one for the class to respond to each day) students will have fun picking out topics from the jar, and you can even have their input on what they want to write about

Journal Jar

A jar is filled with simple, kid-friendly questions that turn journaling sessions into FUN! In addition, place a large jar in your classroom so students can offer their own ideas to be selected for daily journal prompts.

Whole class journals are a cool idea for students who get finished early. Need to think of how to relate to math

Class journals - 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. New twist on my classroom journals.

Wake up those tired words!    We are working on our writing this summer. I think I'll use this idea.

Wake up those tired words

Interactive Word Wall --- this is a great idea for teaching students to spice up their writing. Can gather words from students' writing and then create a word wall for synonyms.
