Looking for an authentic writing activity for your class from now until the end of the year?
Try introducing a few class journals. The format doesn’t really matter: coiled notebooks, extra scribblers, dollar store journals. These shared class journals can have various titles: Favourite Moments of the Year, The Day I Will Never Forget, What I’ve Learned This Year, or The Best Thing About 5B. You get the idea.
What a wonderful way to encourage our students to read and write, to hear the voices of their peers and to help them reflect on the school year.
P.S. My students always liked to draw for them at the end of June…
