Summer Journals

One of our goals with Lincoln this summer is keeping a journal. I decided to do a journal-making project this week before the end of school. 26 kids, one teacher (who is ready for summer!), Harrison and I. Good times. 

Here's the scoop on what we did. 

1. Used basic composition books and downloaded this template for inside the front cover. Cut out a picture of each child for inside the template. 

2. Offer a variety of options for kids to create their own cover. Fun fabrics, paint, watercolor sticks, coloring books to cut out, construction paper, scrapbooking paper, magazines, etc.

3. Wrote out a list of summer journal ideas for them to copy into their front cover. Some of ours included: vacation, nature, daily record of summer activities, dreams, good ideas, and summer camp. 

4. Decorate cover. We used modge podge over the top of the covers so they can take a beating this summer. 

5. Start writing. Get creative. Write your little hearts out. 

Look at these adorable faces. Have a great summer Room 5!
