Growing writers one day at a time...

Every morning my sweet little kiddos come in and get busy with their writing journals.  We have been working all year to build their writing stamina.  When we first started, they were barely able to make it 3 minutes without someone saying, “I’m all done” or “I don’t know what to write”! 

Journaling from November!

I am happy to report that they are now able to write for a solid 15 minutes!  It sure makes me proud of them when I look around and see their ideas pouring out of their heads and onto the paper! 

Journaling from last Friday; and this was just in 5 minutes!

I started the year with a blank journal for them with prompts written on the board.  In November I started using a pre-printed monthly writing journal that have the prompts and sentence starters already there for them. It has made a huge difference in their writing!!  Visit my TPT store to see them in more detail.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a great week!!
