Journeys: Work on Writing FREEBIE

My school has adapted the reading program Journeys this year. It's such a comprehensive reading program that is aligned with the Common Core, so it's fantastic! I wanted to share briefly with you how I integrate part of the Daily 5 with Journeys.  One of the Daily 5 rotations is Work on Writing. Since the Common Core is heavy on writing about reading, I've developed some journal prompts that go along with the book we are reading in Journeys. Below are the journal prompts/questions for Unit 1 Lesson 3, Dogs. The kids did a great job with these, with modeling of course!

If you use Journeys, you can grab these for free here!  I'll be creating these for every one of the whole group stories in Journeys.

Happy Sunday!
