Stock Your Classroom with Draw and Write Journals
Starting in preschool and through the early elementary grades, children should have their own journals. Whether you call them writing journals, storybook journals, writing notebooks or any variation thereof, the goal is the same. Children will learn to express themselves through the written word and begin to associate print with reading while developing fine muscle control. Sometimes children will draw pictures and dictate their narration to an adult. Be prepared with writing prompts for reluctant writers. Becker's recognizes the importance of journal writing and offers a line of journals that can be used across the curriculum.
