Daily Journal Prompts for February!

I am so happy to say that our January Journal Prompts have been a HUGE success!  I have a little girl who loves to write and draw, so these journal prompts have been PERFECT!  Daily journal prompts are great way to give students an opportunity to practice many skills such as grammar, spelling, and writing.   Most importantly, journal prompts gives a creative outlet for writing!

Here are the February Daily Journal Prompts...

For right now, I am just using the journal prompts as an opportunity for her to write and to get her thoughts out on paper.  Sometimes she writes only 1-2 sentences and other times she really gets excited and fills two pages.  We begin by brainstorming and talking about the topic.  We talk about how she can start and I model for her what I might write in the journal.  If she needs help sounding out words then we do it together.  Sometimes we have a more structured format, other times I just let her write whatever she wants.  She typically wants to respond to two journal prompts a day!  That makes me super happy:)  The best thing about these daily journal prompts is that we are writing every day.

We get our journals spiral bound so that they become a keepsake for years to come.  I love that these journal packs are made for K-2 students, so we can use them again next year.  However, I am sure that our writing will improve over the next couple of years and it will be exciting to see the changes and growth!  This helps me keep her writing in one place and it is a perfect way to meet many Common Core Standards for writing!
I hope you enjoy these too!

You can purchase this fun product in either of our shops!

I so wished my grandson enjoyed writing. These are really cute, and maybe when he is a bit older he will be more motivated to write. I still have hope that my Sweet Pea will like to write stories.

Binding your journals is such an awesome idea. A journal like this IS so much more of a keepsake that the typical blank page type that I've been using for years. Your prompts are so inviting - my kiddos love them!

I love, love your journal prompt pages! Alex is having such fun with these. I created a post that includes your pages which will post next Friday. I will include a link to your great post on them.
Thanks, Annie, for all your hard work!
