whole class writing journals. As Duffy said, writing should be incorporated 30 min a day. My cooperating teachers has students reflect and write on their day after each set of centers. They then share and it gets them writing and reading!

Pinner said, "My students last year loved having whole class journals to write in. They had a chance to write in them during Work on Writing, and a chance to read them during Read to Self. I made up a new set of 8. At the moment they are pretty plain covers, but once a student writes in it they have the option of choosing a sticker from my collection to place on the front cover. The stickers show me how many kids have tackled each topic."

Whole class journals adapted to math by creating a journal per unit and allowing groups to be responsible for the content in the math task writing station of my classroom.

8 whole class journals for the students to write in. Select 8 students each week to write in one of the journals. The next week, 8 different children will be selected to write, and so on. By the time were finished, each journal should have about 25 different entries written in them. Students will be able to read what their classmates have written as well.

Writing #1. This is a class journal box where students have the opportunity to answer different prompts. Whether they finish their work early and need something to work on, or they go to the writing center, this activity is good to encourage the writing process and the teacher can direct the students to write about certain topics within the writing process.

For older kids, this would be so neat: class journals with prompts written on the front, when you finish working you pick one to read your friends' responses and add your own!
