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.
