Elementary School Daily Journal


Writing skills are becoming increasingly critical as more and more of our communication is done through the internet.  To encourage my homeschoolers to be more enthusiastic about writing, I designed a writing journal with TONS of topics they can use to write about.  I do not nitpick grammar or spelling in journal writing, because the purpose of journal writing is to get students used to putting their ideas down on paper.  Putting a time limit on journal also may motivate students to learn how to avoid “writer’s block” and to just start writing!  I used free images found online to enhance the journal pages.

Here is a PDF of the journal pages.  Be patient for it to load… it is 101 pages!
