Journal Writing in the Early Years
I created this short video to show journal writing in my literacy classroom. The children always enjoyed the writing component of my lessons as they could choose their own topics, write independently and write with their friends in a social environment. This should be an essential component in your literacy program and I recommend doing this once a week.
