In this webinar, you will learn how her simple 5-minute journal routine transformed her classroom, and how you, too, can get starting teaching your students empathy, leadership, and more.

Wow!!! love it. I believe I could find a way to do this type of thing 2nd semester with my Kindergartners! Thank you!!!
Great ideas! Writing is a great stress relief for me
Emily had some great ideas on journaling, I really liked her ideas.
Great tips! I teach 12th grade English and have taught Creative Writing in the past. I've found that there is no better way to get kids out of their shells and to help them gain self-esteem than through writing.
