 Does your child(ren) write in one at home or at school daily?

Do you plan on giving your daughter one?

My son writes in a journal everyday at school. I am not sure what the daily topic is or how he comes up with what to write, but I know he has to do it. His teacher told me that one of the things she would like to see improve is what he writes in his journal. He does not like to write, color, or anything like that so he writes the bare min that he needs to.

My oldest son either writes or draws in his journal every day at school.  Our school starts this in first grade and every class does this.  He brings his journal home at the end of the school year and so far we have looked at it together.  It's been fun to look back on the year and talk about what was going on when he wrote/drew something.

We're big writers here.  For Christmas, my older two received lovely hard-backed journals from their uncle, from Borders.  Paperchase company, I think.  They're really cool.  Now I want to go raid the pens and journals at Borders, too.

Sometimes they write stories in them, sometimes just their thoughts, but they're always doodling something.  

Now, of course, Samantha is chomping at the bit to write more than her alphabet.  Baby steps, dear.  Baby steps.

My daughter has several diaries; she never wrote more than two sentences in them. Most grades she has been in have journaled at least once a week; it is a great activity both for improving writing skills and creating self-analysis skills.
