Haven't been here for awhile. I've written a couple of times about this so I'm hoping that now that the new school year has started some of you will have some ideas to share. I have the Draw and write journals from Lakeshore and I'm looking for suggestions. So far I've had the children draw a picture of self and write their name as best they can, draw a picture of their house, and draw of picture of something they can do (ie. dressing self, setting table, jumping rope...). How often do you have them work in their journals? Do you do it as a large group or in small groups? Thanks for any help you can give!!!!
