100 Days of Learning Journal!

I LOVE the idea of having a class diary that records 100 Days of learning! 

 Each day, you create a page in the class journal. I plan on creating pages together at large group time and then making it a class job. I listed below some ideas
I have to put in the journal.

If you scroll down you can find the Crayola site this great idea comes from!!
This is what I came up with for my class learning journal.

I bought this sketchbook at Michael's Craft store. It's a good size   11''X14". You can also find these books at AC Moore, both stores always run 40 percent off coupons each week and teachers get 15 percent too.

I used my Cricut machine to make the cover.

I love that this book has blank pages. They do sell smaller ones too. I have used the smaller ones for class journals. It has a sturdy hardcover.
                 What can we record in our Learning Journal?

 Number each day in big bold colors(Crayola idea)
record something about the number of the day(morning math time)
make an illustration from the class read aloud
let the illustrator of the day draw something they loved about the day
popular recess game
record the Open Circle lesson
record the weather
record the results of the survey question
a special activity
a math game played
use this book as a tool to go back to when making memory books
read all the pages on the 100 day

Starting the year, I plan on incorporating this journal 
into my writing workshop mini-lesson!

Interactive Writing Lesson
labeling Lesson
using Invented Spelling
making illustrations together 

I love this journal idea. 

 This book will be an excellent way to share with parents all of the learning taking place in kindergarten. 

Happy writing and drawing!

  1. Love it! I usually have 2 students share "news". It would be great for them to illustrate a picture and to write a little about their news.

    Will do this! Thanks.


  2. I'm going to ponder how I can work this into our day. Thanks.
