    Whole class Writing Journals- early finishers, read in read to self time. Once a student writes in it has the option of choosing a sticker for front cover

    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.

This gave me an idea for one of my favorite quotes: Take a picture of hands in family and hang under the quote: "Un homme est qu'il a fait, par ses mains voyons sa coeur." ( A man is what he has done, by his hands we see his heart.) -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

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.

whole class writing journals. As Duffy said, writing should be incorporated 30 min a day. My cooperating teachers has students reflect and write on their day after each set of centers. They then share and it gets them writing and reading!
