The fantastic thing about this resource is that it can be used in a variety of ways – find what works for you and your students. A few ideas are given below.
Pre-Print Journal: Choose your picture prompts ahead of time and print out the necessary pages for your students to use throughout the month.
Free Choice: Print a variety of prompts for students to self-select their writing paper.
Use the Special Holidays: There is a specific section at the end of the pack that coordinates with special holidays for the month. Use those on the indicated day (bottom left-hand corner) and let students self-select the rest of the month.
Early Finisher: If your school follows a specific writing plan, train your students on how to use this resource and utilize it as an early finisher activity.
I suggest you copy every page with two sides – the picture prompt on the front side and a full line page on the back. The blank writing paper is found after the journal cover.
