My students need reading journals to write their feelings, thoughts, and dreams!

I teach at a Title I where most of our kids eat free or reduced price lunches every day. We are in North Carolina which is 50/50 of the major cities in the US for economic mobility.
This means that statistically, my students, who have been born into poverty, will not be able to break that cycle-but mine will!
I, along with the other teachers at our school, do everything we can to give our students the skills and knowledge they need to end the poverty cycle that affects them daily. My kids are brave, resilient, ornery, and all of the great things that 11 and 12 year old kids are, but I need help ensuring that they have the physical tools they need to succeed and enjoy their learning environment.
In my literacy classroom, we are always writing our reactions to different texts, stories, and media. The ownership of a reading journal allows students to become independent and responsible for their own learning - which is a valuable skill in middle school!
Reading journals are a necessity in my classroom - it's where all of the great ideas are formed.
My students need new reading journals in order to continue growing in their self-expression and writing about their own connections with literature. With this project, they will be able to take notes and keep track of their progress this year.
