This past Christmas I gave them a journal with some journal strip and they loved them. So did their parents. Many of my firsties brought in their journals and shared what they wrote. I thought that I would make up some for the summer. I will encourage them to bring their journals back in the fall and show me what they wrote. Luckily I stocked up on composition books during the back-to-school season. These are cut apart strips, so they can choose what prompt they want to write about, cut it out, glue it down and then write and draw away. Here is an example.
I thought that I would also include a fun pencil and a new pack of crayons. A fun and cheaper end of the year gift. Here is a sample page.
What do you give for end of the year gifts? I would love to hear your ideas. If you are interested in the summer journal pack, click the picture below.
Well, I am off to a school evening event. How many more days of school do you have left?
