Whole-Class Journals...Yes, Please!

Yesterday, I created whole-class journals with a writing prompt. I love this idea because students can add to it on their own time and write with a purpose! Instead of just writing different responses in journals, which-don't get me wrong, I have my students do as well...these journals are left out for classmates to read through and add to. Here are the topics that I created:
-Your Future Job
- A Dream You Had
-Family Vacation
-Your Weekend

3rd graders at my school will also be focusing on random acts of kindess and having an overall caring attitude toward others. Another journal will be made for students to write about kind things that others have done for them. I just picked up that spiral today. I don't know about you, but it seems like I can't steer myself away from the school supply sections in ANY store! Then, of course, I feel like I HAVE to buy something...hence these 17 cent spiral notebooks from Wal-Mart :) ....and the big erasers, pencils, magnets, etc...There's just something about the new, isn't there?!


  1. I really like this journal idea. I have journals with my 1st grade but I didn't do well with them last year. I am going to work harded on writing this year. Thanks for buzzing by my blog. I'm now following you too!

    I'm going to be having a giveaway soon so check back=)

    when i read this piece of writing i thought i could also create comment due to this brilliant paragraph.

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

  6. Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.
    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this short article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending a lot of
    time both reading and posting comments. But so what,
    it was still worthwhile!
