Sentence Starters For Journal Writing – Part 3

Today’s blog is a continuation of my blogs from the past 2 days.  https://kindergartenteacherclaire.wordpress.com/2011/08/02/sentence-starters-for-journal-writing-part-1/

Here are some questions that your child could answer while writing in his/her journal.  Your child will be writing LOTS in first grade so practice, practice, practice is what is needed to be successful in this writing skill.
