Last week, we did our first entry in our journals. Our journals will be used as a free-expression and free-writing tool where students will have the opportunity to reflect and illustrate their thoughts and ideas. As we begin, I will act as a scribe but with time, students will develop the skills to write letters, words, sentences to describe their illustration. The ‘free’ part of our journal writing is to encourage students to write about what is important to them, the writing process is much more likely to be meaningful and thus the learning becomes more productive in terms of language development.
