Next year in my blended class, my students are going to have to create a blog online. Each day, they will be journaling. They can always write about something that is interesting to them. I will also give some ideas for them to write in case they have writer’s block. I just developed the first journal entry that they will complete. I got many ideas from this website. It has some awesome writing ideas. Even if you aren’t doing journaling, you could use these for a warm-up activity. These are the first topics:
1. Write a list of the following people and describe one of them:
-My favorite teacher
-A friend from elementary school
-An interesting relative
-A person from my hometown who is my hero
-A really funny friend
2. Write which one you prefer and why:
-Meat or cheese?
-Read, sing or dance?
-Fall or spring?
-Red or blue?
-French fries or salad?
-Exercising in the park or in the gym?
