Whole class journals..each student can write in them on a certain topic and the class can read them at different time.

Writing #1. This is a class journal box where students have the opportunity to answer different prompts. Whether they finish their work early and need something to work on, or they go to the writing center, this activity is good to encourage the writing process and the teacher can direct the students to write about certain topics within the writing process.

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.

Quiet writing time with fun music was one of the MOST peaceful times in my classroom this year. The kids loved it. Love this chart to introduce the expectations for it.

Make rubrics on sticky labels - why didn't i think of that?! Love this idea!!

Paragraph Reminder~ This is great for students who are beginning to write multi-paragraph narratives or essays. Simple, clear, and helpful!

Creating class books...We make 1 per week and the kids LOVE reading them all year long, then we raffle them off on the last day of school. So fun!
