    I aso love the idea of a comment box and will do that this year. In the past I've done "lifebooks". Students decorate a journal w/ pics, magazine clippings, etc. and they write in it throughout the year.

    Sometimes I'll have them write in their lifebooks as morning work (I'll give a prompt or a question). Other times I use it to fill up empty time. The thing I've found it most useful for are those times when the kids all want to tell me a story. I ALWAYS use lifebooks after any holiday ("Tell me what you got for Christmas"), after many weekends, or if something big happened and they've all seen it on the news.

    I tried reading all of them each time, but its a lot of work. So I pick a few each time and add my comments at the end of theirs.
