Now that we’re getting into the heart of summer, I wanted to encourage my kiddos to do a little bit of summer journaling. So I made this fun Summer Journaling Notebook to help inspire them!
Directions for use:
- Print pages back to back, then cut down the center to create a 5×8 journaling booklet. You can print as many copies of each page as you like, it’s totally up to you.
- Stack the pages together and have them coil bound at an office supply store.
- Encourage your students to journal about their experiences this summer!
