We are big fans of journalling (or journaling, if you prefer US spellings) at Activity Village. There are many reasons to promote a regular journalling habit. It encourages regular writing practice. It helps kids to get thoughts out of their heads and down on paper - always a good thing. And it gives children something to look back on, either for fun or for reflection.
We are building up a collection of printables that you can use to get the kids started on a regular journalling habit - or just use in the classroom or home on the odd occasion, for a fun writing activity.
