    I used journals last year with my third graders. I had journal prompts written on the board before they came into school. When they entered the room, they put their things away, took out their journals and wrote their entry. We used it as a daily morning routine so that I could take attendance and check homework and any notes that came in. The only problem I ran into was checking them. There was no time!!! I eventually changed it to 1-2 times a week and had them read a book on the other days. Also, I had them read their entries outloud if they wanted to so that I could then listen for errors. I would also quickly glance over their journals at the end of the day to see if their writing was correct.
