Whole Class Writing Journals - Each journal has a different topic with a copy of the class list on the inside of the front cover. The students can also read the journals at a different time. Would also be a good 'I'm finished early' activity.
Friday Journals—kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it—a great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.
