Summer Journaling Activities for your Little Writers

Being a teacher, I have come across websites and websites of information and activities for your little ones. I am posting a journaling calendar for June. Suggestions: Allow your child to pick out and decorate a journal that they will enjoy writing in. Next, pick the perfect time of day, like in the morning, after lunch or even right before they go to sleep to write in their journals. Finally, the most important thing, ALWAYS allow your child to share their writing, maybe it can be their bedtime story or their presentation before the whole family. Make it a BIG deal! Other Journal Ideas: Traveling Journals (great if you will be taking family vacations this summer), Nature Journals etc.

Here is the June Journal Calendar! It even gives them free days and a word list up top.
Mark off each day with a sticker or stamp!http://www.busyteacherscafe.com/worksheets/journals/jc_june.pdf

Here are some great journal ideas and supplies:
