Writing is one of the best skills a writer can have. With our fun materials, writers can exercise their creativity and imagination as they learn the fundamentals of written expression.
Are your students writing every day? Are they practicing all the important forms of writing (creative, descriptive, expository, narrative, and persuasive)? How about literary devices, sentence revisions, and skill builders like finding antonyms for vocabulary words?
This 34-page writing journal for grades 4/5 makes all of this possible in an easy-to-use, printer-friendly format. Just download, print, and have your students complete one page per day. If done every day, this will take you through six weeks of daily writing.
This writing journal for grades K-1 (as well as eager preschoolers and reluctant writers of higher grades) is just what you need to get your students writing. It’s 35 pages of writing activities designed for beginning writers. This journal is the perfect introduction to writing because its activities are broken down into the basics of narrative, expository, creative, descriptive, and persuasive writing, laying the foundations for later years. Also included are skill-building exercises like writing sight words and naming opposites and rhyming words.
