My Writing Journeys is a "100-page writing-practice book that engages students through a wide variety of writing and art forms. Each activity has been designed to draw on the students’ personal experiences and connections."

  1. I'm all for encouraging writing in children and the earlier, the better. This looks like a great resource for children, parents and teachers.

  3. As someone who has seen this product, this writing journal is rich in learning, and allows students to grow academically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The text allows students to use writing as a tool to express their feelings, while making connections to their lives and to the world around them. As a teacher, I believe that My Writing Journeys is a unique tool for educators as it not only covers the writing component of the curriculum, but rather it touches upon all subject areas, such as media literacy, science, social studies, etc. As a parent, this resource can provide your child with the opportunity to expand their intrapersonal thinking as it exercises their thought processing ability, allows them to reflect on their experiences, and it also allows them to appreciate that writing is an on-going and reflective process. All the activities are designed to engage or 'hook' the attention of the student, allows them to brainstorm their thoughts, encourages them to critically anaylze their writing process, as well as it shows them the development in their thinking and the growth in their writing.
