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.
Stepping Out gives young writers a variety of activities to increase their fluency in writing. All writing prompts include a Writer’s Checklist specific to that type of composition. It includes four activities for each of the following:

*Revision (revising basic sentences)
*Literary devices (simile, metaphor, hyperbole)
