Summer Writing Journals
Sometimes we worry that our students will forget everything we have taught them over the summer. To try to prevent this from happening, we prepare summer writing journals and distribute them as parting gifts. To make your own, copy and bind pages topped with a variety of writing prompts, such as, “I finally learned how to…”, “The best thing I did with my family this week was…” and “A great movie I just saw was…”. Alternately, you can glue journal prompts to the tops of pages in a composition book and add a cute cover to the front. These give our students support and encouragement to journal over the summer and confidence in their writing.
