    Daily Journal Idea

  • Anne Tanner

    Start a daily diary! Every day for 100 days, create a new page with highlights of the day.

    Start a daily class diary! Every day for 100 days, create a new page with highlights of the day. With 100 days, everyone in your class will get several turns to contribute! I like this idea for an end of year memory book...maybe do a weekly report on Fridays reflecting on big things that happened. Could also be a class journal for fast finishers.

so doing a 5th grade version of this this year!!! Shared reading/writing!!!

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.

This is a simple way to set up the use of "whole-class journals" in your classroom. I have created 16 journal prompts to get your students in the writing mood. I also added 4 blank covers (in case you want to create your own). All you have to do is print the covers, glue them onto a spiral notebook, and put them in a spot your students can easily access.

101 Writing Prompts Idea in a Jar - like "What would you do if you found a pair of magical shoes?" or "Write a story about a robot that does your homework."

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.
