More journaling ideas

I have been plugging away on my blended class for next year.  I have planned some more journaling ideas for my students. These could be used for a blog or a paper journal.  I always give my students the option to write about any topic that is important to them as well.  I want to help those that need a little inspiration each time.


  • ¿Te gusta viajar en avión?  ¿Por qué?
  • ¿Cuáles son tus preferencias cuándo viajas en avión?  ¿Te gusta hablar con las personas durante el viaje?  ¿Te gusta ir por el control de seguridad?  ¿Cuál bebida bebes en el avión?  ¿Dónde te gusta comer en el aeropuerto?
  • Mi película favorita es…
  • Yo pienso/no pienso que hay extraterrestres (aliens) porque…
  • Estoy contento/a cuando…
  • Si eres un animal en el zoológico, ¿cuál eres? ¿Por qué?
  • Cuando no dormiste una noche, ¿qué hiciste (did)?
  • Si puedes vivir en Antártida, ¿quieres?  ¿Qué haces en Antártida?
  • ¿Qué está detrás de la puerta?  Describe la escena.
  • Escribir sobre una cosa muy mala.  Escribe un cuento muy malo.
  • Mi futuro/a esposo/a

  1. Love these and am going to use some of them when I have the kids keep journals next year. I appreciate your blog so much – it’s very inspiring! I have been putting off doing journals for the longest time because I am very much a perfectionist when it comes to grading writing. However, a colleague of mine has shown me the light! She corrects (sometimes) corrects one or two errors (if they are major) in the journals and then makes some sort of comment or asks a question to get them to write even more!

    I am so excited and inspired by these ideas!

    1. Thanks! I used journals my first year, but I didn’t feel like I had time enough to comment on them etc. I am excited to reinstate it next year and will see how it goes!

    This post makes me think how asking students to write a review as an end of term assessment would make an awesome post and a good opportunity for them to review and evaluate the unit of work from their perspective. Wish I had done this last term actually!! A few hiccups with using ipads inappropriately which was disappointing but also a valuable opportunity to reiterate iPad usage rules and expectations!
