This creative critical thinking weekly journal is a FULL YEAR bundle and perfect for morning work, early finishers and more! You can set this journal up as a bell ringer activity or an early finisher journal!
This bundle includes weekly activities for August through June!
Each week includes three sections: Each of the 45 sheets begins with a child-friendly quote to interpret. I have found that interpreting quotes challenges students to really think about what they are reading and helps with the tricky skill of inference. The second activity always has something to do with words and vocabulary building, and the third activity varies, but often has some connection to an event or date during that week.
There are three different formatting options to choose from:
- Specific Weeks: Each of the 45 sheets is labeled with a specific week during which to use it. (August-December)
- Week of: Each of the 45 sheets has a blank "Week of_______" label but still includes monthly symbols and references within the activities. These can be used at any time during the month.
- No Monthly Reference: Each of the 45 sheets has no week and no monthly references and can be used any time.
Check out the preview and zoom in to see examples of the pages!
Here are some ways this journal can be used:
