I love the journal idea and having the kids decorate it in class. My students always bring their "Writing Through the Year" journals back to me years after they left my class--I never thought to let them bring pictures in to decorate the covers. Wow! A simple and terrific idea--but you seem to have plenty of those. Thanks for sharing all of these terrific ideas. My year is going to go better because of you!
Thank you, Kate. The kids keep their journals this way and treasure it for years to come. This year's class is very proud of their journals- and they love having their pictures on them, also. My class is certainly a group of aspiring writers! They are VERY strong and creative. - Victoria
