English Journaling Worksheets (5)

1


1 per unit - Virtual OK

This file includes different daily/weekly journals that I use with all of my own young learners. I've included three different levels that have increasing amounts of writing and language complexity. There's a "weekly" and a "daily" version when necessary, in A4 and letter size. Both PDFs and Word documents of each journal page are included. This is a total of five documents: beginner, weekly intermediate, daily intermediate, weekly advanced, and daily advanced.

It's a simple activity, but a journal is a great warm-up. A student's daily (or weekly) journal is a window into the development of their language and writing skills as well as their personality and personal lives. It's also fun for students to keep and collect their journal entries over the course of a term or school year and then look back on them later. When I first got the idea to make journaling a regular part of my EFL instruction, it was impossible to find exactly what I was looking for, so I made it myself. Hopefully other teachers (EFL and otherwise) will benefit from my frustration!

Training & Qualifications


I'm an EFL teacher with a CELTA and five years' teaching experience, both at schools and as a private tutor, with students ranging from age 4 to adult. I'm passionate about fostering clear thinking and a love of the written word in my students.

Katherine reacted fast to my proposal for a 3 card reading. The reading itself made a lot more sense than any reading I have had done before. this la...dy has a great inside in the cards, without knowing anything about me. I really appreciated it and I am sure I will come back to here. Nice!show more

About Katherine Koba

Everything I enjoy comes down to words, details, and helping and educating others. In my work life, I'm a professional Swedish -> English translator. I work with corporate documents: everything fr...om annual and interim reports to internal memos to press releases. I was a freelance copyeditor and ESL tutor before that. Before that I spent two years teaching English at cram schools in South Korea, and before THAT I was a cave tour guide. In my fun life, I co-organize a local writing Meetup, translate semi-obscure Swedish women writers into English, and read a lot. I also work on my own writing projects, which tend to be character-driven SF/F and literary novels. I'm a bit of a language nerd, too; I study Russian and Korean in my spare time, and try to keep up my high school German and college French. I also like to surprise people with postcards and tea and other fun things in the mail!show more
