If you head over to my TpT store, I have 2 FREE units to download and a NEW September Class Writing Journals that I would love you to check out. It is aligned to the common core and the topics lend themselves to narratives, opinion pieces and informative/explanatory pieces!
Here are a few examples of the September Class Journal Covers that you can find over at TpT. These are great for a writing center, class assignment or book cover too. You can check it out and grab the FREE sets while you are there.
Hope this is making the beginning of the year just a bit easier to help to get your writing center started! I am heading back to school tomorrow and kids come a week later:)
