It goes without saying that you can't have an ELA classroom without writing. I've found that while writing is often central to instruction, students aren't always provided with the time or space to write freely. At the heart of my teaching philosophy lies the reminder that we are not just helping students be successful in the classroom, but that we are working to create lifelong learners. The practices that we introduce to them are among those they take into their lives later down the road. With these journals, I hope to instill a daily practice of reflection and free writing. These journals and other supplies will be used as a morning warm up activity each day. When students arrive, rather than having a different bell ringer each day, students will be provided with 15 minutes of free writing time. As this will be a new practice at the beginning of the year I'll provide guidance until they're able to transition to a more independent practice.
