Instructional Ideas
  • Start off each day for a few weeks with a writing prompt to get pupils into journaling
  • Allow for some time to share responses after the writing is complete
  • Pick and choose prompts and pair them with related lessons and units
Classroom Considerations
  • The first slide does include the teachers name and the year the prompts were created, and you cannot edit the resource; however, you don't need to show the first slide, and you could easily transfer the prompts to your own slide show 
  • These prompts still require thought, but allow for less formal writing that can help learners build their abilities
  • Journaling is generally a less stressful environment to help learners write fluidly
  • None
