Showing off journal pages
 
 




 

Daily Reading - Writing Workshop always offers journal writing as an option.

These end of the year journal entries are interesting because they show how the child transfers (or doesn’t transfer!) the writing skills that we have been focusing on into their “free writing.”  If I remind them about Capitals, periods, spaces, text size, etc., then they use those things. When doing “free writing” you can tell that these concepts are not yet automatic.
