Today we wrote in our favorite journals! OUR FAMILY JOURNALS-a big write shout out to these spiral communication logs! Since the beginning of the year, my Multi-agers have been corresponding to a family member-mom, dad, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents! Each Wednesday, they choose who they are going to write to and then write a journal entry to the family member! That night, the family member writes them back and we share the entries the following week! These are a great tool to have my students summarize highlights from the past week and express their loves and passions about school! Furthermore, my students are doing one thing that many families have little time to do these days, communicate in a written form.
