Lesson 9 – Dialogue Journals

When we were in school from September through January we wrote in our Dialogue Journals every week. Students know about these special books. Students wrote for ten minutes each Writing Wednesday, and Ms. Denise answered back. Usually she would write about the same amount as they wrote. 

In Quarter 3, we weren’t able to write each week, but we will write once in a while. Ms. Denise will print out your assignment today and glue it into the Dialogue Journal, as this will be a keepsake and reminder of this chapter in our school’s history.

Today’s entry:

Type or write your dialogue journal entry, at least one page. Use Google Docs, Word Document, or paper and pencil or pen. Return to me in the E-Locker. You can write in your Dialogue Journals as often as you wish. I will answer each one you write.

I often give a prompt to follow. It is optional. If the child has something else to tell me, they are free to write about anything on their minds.

Today’s optional question: What are ten things you do on a typical day at home in March?

These are the dialogue journals from one class.
