I created Monthly Writing Prompt Cards to spark their creativity, and they are really excited to write about the topics.
I did have one or two kids ask if they could "free write" and I did allow it.
On Friday, I created a December Traveling Journal. It is a regular spiral notebook. I created a cover, December word list, and a note with 3 writing prompts to choose from. I also wrote an example story, so they could see what my clear expectations were. Every day a student will write in the journal using one of the prompts. My goal is to include the journal in our classroom library as well as share it with the other 2nd grade classrooms. My ultimate goal is to have the other classes write in the journal too. I had my first student write in it on Friday. She didn't finish yet, but so far it is a really cute story! I look forward to reading the finished product!
