Preschooler’s Journal: Daily Journal for Pre-Writers

Little Miss loves telling stories, expressing herself and imagining so when I began planning our homeschool days I really wanted to incorporate journaling for my pre-writer. I discovered a great composition notebook at our local Wally World that has a section for drawings then sections for writing; a great mix for pre-writers.

I prep Little Miss’ journal with journal prompts for 5 days at a time; either with my own or prompts that I gather from other sites such as Super Teacher Worksheets. Some days are serious, funny, basic or imaginative, either way Little Miss thoroughly enjoys journaling.

When it comes to the writing part of her journaling sometimes she “writes” lines or letters that she has been learning, but either way I ask her to share her journal writing with me and her siblings so that we know what she is journaling about then I write what she shared with us.
