LOVE this idea for part of my writing center! :: 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.

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.

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!

Journal Jar

Looking for an easy, interesting holiday gift? It's a journal in a jar! This one is for grown-ups Jumpstart journal writers with a quart-sized canning jar filled with folded strips of paper. Each one contains a single thought provoking journal prompt. Paired with a pretty blank book, a Journal Jar makes a great gift....family journal idea

Teaches kids how to use adjectives and allows them a chance to get used to standing up in front of a classroom full of children. A shy child could be a possible downfall of completing this activity to its fullest extent.
