Writer's Journal

I like to begin the school year by having students divide their writer's journal into four parts: Places I've Been, Things I Know About, People I know and Other. Then, they create lists under each category. The days following this writing activity, we do 5 minute quick writes on the items they wrote on their lists. Later in the school year, these four sections also serve as a place where students can get ideas from when they don't know what to write about.
