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!
