FREE Printables to create your own Family Response Journals. Kids and parents write back and forth all year. GREAT end of the year gift!

Pinner said, "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."

Use a pencil case to store sand and an unsharpened pencil to practice writing letters, names, and words. You could use the same setup for writing in the sand with your finger.
