Inside: Wondering how to introduce preschool journals to 3 year olds? Here are some examples of our journal activities, and how we keep them simple.
Journals are one of our favorite activities in our classroom. Often when I mention to others that we do journals, I get looks of disbelief. Some people have told me they are too young. But when I say we do simple journals with 3 year olds, I must emphasize SIMPLE.
SIMPLE preschool journals.
Journals with 3 year olds exposes them to handling writing tools, opening books, moving from left to right, and dictating. Our journals are cherished by their young owners. They love that these books are THEIRS. Teachers can do these during small group time. And at the end of the school year they get to take them home.
