Our Monday Mornings are full of conversations about what we missed in each other's lives over the weekend. It is the chattiest time of the week. The students love to share and express themselves in a very animated way. We channel this energy into our Monday Morning journal writing. I give students a topic to write about such as their favorite food, a place they like to visit, an important person in their life or they can choose their own topic. Afterwards, we share our journal and pictures with our friends!
