    A jar is filled with simple, kid-friendly questions that turn journaling sessions into FUN! CLICK HERE to print off the colorful writing prompts. Next, cut, fold, and place them in a jar. Have your children/students pick a prompt each day. They can tape it on top of a page in a blank book or copy the questions and then write their responses. They can even add illustrations. I plan on using this writing activity during the summer months with my kids.#Repin By:Pinterest++ for iPad#

Embedded within the text are obvious "how-to" pieces (tips and lists) such as "Snacks for a Grandpa," "How to Entertain a Grandpa," and "How to Wake Up a Grandpa." (Would support your work with the Common Core Standards for writing.)
