About this book
Explain to students that, like a journal, a diary is a book in which people record their thoughts and daily life experiences. Ask students if they've ever kept a diary or read a published diary.
- Diaries are nonfiction and are written in the first person.
- They often contain anecdotes as well as personal information.
Discuss how a diary is different from other forms of writing.
- How is a diary entry different from a letter?
Have students write about something that has happened today.
- What would you like to remember about this day a month or a year from now?
Students might like to include their writing in their Journals.
