Kindergarten Journal Prompts

Using journal prompts in the classroom is a great way to reinforce skills in just a few minutes each day. I’ve had several requests for literacy journal prompts. Voilà, they are now complete! The format is exactly the same as my Kindergarten Math Journals. The journal prompts are easily printed and cut out for student use. When you use daily journal prompts in the classroom, you can really see the growth of students throughout the year. I loved showing these journals to parents and letting them see the progress their child made. Your students will also look forward to using journals in the classroom. They would always be SO SAD if we skipped it for a day.

Teaching students how to use a daily journal takes some practice! Check out my blog post about Starting Kindergarten Math Journals for some ideas. The journal prompts become more difficult with each month so that they are supporting your teaching as the year progresses.

Although the directions say to circle the pictures, you can have students write the words for more practice. Take it even further and have them write a sentence using the word. Scaffold as needed!

We also want to give students opportunities to brainstorm ideas.

Any opportunity to add a little extra sentence writing… I’ll take it!

The journal prompts are not intended to be taught sequentially. With around 30 journal prompts each month, you can pick and choose which ones align best with your curriculum. Each sheet of journal prompts has the common core standard at the top right corner for reference.

Are these prompts formatted for labels?

I am often asked if these prompts are formatted for printing on labels.  No, they are not.  I have two reasons why:

  1. I. AM.CHEAP!  Labels are expensive.  Each month, I print out ALL of the prompts for the entire month, so I print out 30 pieces of paper.  As the month progresses, I select the journal prompts I want to have the students practice.  Since we do not have 30 instructional days each month, not every prompt is used.  Roughly 10 journal prompts go into the recycling.  If those were labels, I would cry BIG TEARS as I tossed the expensive labels into the bin.
  2. Labels take SO LONG to pass out.  OY!  Peeling those labels off and placing them on the journals would take me a LONG time.  Yes, I could hand them to the students and THEY could put them on, but it does not take a lot of imagination to see how problematic that could be.   SO, instead, I cut the paper prompts out and place them in the lid of the students’ crayon box as I am reading the prompt.  The students then glue the journal prompt into their notebook.
