Writing Journal Prompts!

Hi Everyone!

It's been a looooong while since I've been to our poor little blog! I would LOVE to know where the heck the time seems to go!

My kiddos come in in the morning and start writing in their journals. I found myself thinking up journal prompts on the fly and scribbling them onto the board (I'm a lefty and I HATE, HATE, HATE the way my handwriting looks on the board!!). I hate not being prepared and trying to remember what I've already had them write about so I searched for something that would work for me. This seems to happen to me everytime because I found a little bit of this and a little bit of that which didn't all work for me. I ended up with tons of wasted paper and a failed system! This is where I decided to take matters into my own hands and made my own monthly journal prompts! It's working beautifully for me now and I am so eager to share them with you!

I've completed prompts for August, September, October, November, and December and am in the process of working on the rest of the school year. I've listed them in our TPT store, so be sure to check them out! It contains EVERYTHING you need (minus pencils and creative little kiddos!) to implement journal writing in your classroom. I included a main calendar for the month, a large journal prompt to display on your SmartBoard, a sheet of individual prompts for your young kiddos who just need to cut/paste them into their journal, a cover for your journals (one in color and one in black and white), and several types of writing paper to choose from!

You can view them here in our TPT store!

We have pictures to upload from our Halloween festivities last week, but I'll have to do that this weekend when my eyelids aren't shutting! :-)

Happy November!

    Your blog is very awesome, I love the Halloween stuffs and crafts and Writing Journal Prompts. I want my students to start creating their own journals too, I know it will make them a better person.
