Class journals - once a student writes in it they have the option of choosing a sticker from my collection to place on the front cover. The stickers show me how many kids have tackled each topic. New twist on my classroom journals.
This Day In History - October (Student Ready Version)
We use this for morning work every day. One of our class jobs is historian, and the historians read the fact for the day. The students then respond to the questions. I teach 3rd grade but I think any grade could use this as a writing prompt, morning work, or even a packet for fast finishers!
