This week I've been busy updating and creating some new resources for my stores... And with this in mind I decided to join in on the Freebie Friday's over at Teaching Blog Addict. This week's freebie is my Journal Writing Tasks printable activity.
This task encourages students to write throughout the school term. Students are given 11 different writing tasks exploring the following text types:
- Narrative (two different activities)
- Factual Recount
- Description (two different activities)
- Comic Strip
- Review/Personal Response
- Fictional Recount
Whether you're looking for a new way to keep your kids occupied on a rainy day, or hoping to help your class branch out in their writing, this is a wonderful tool to inspire and motivate your students to express their thoughts and feelings.
This activity has many benefits for your students, and provides them with the opportunity to explore different text types that aim to encourage them to find innovative ways of thinking, and will excite them endlessly with the prospect of possibility. The simple act of writing is a powerful way to express feelings, new ideas and instill creativity.
