I have a larger number of students who stutter this year and, as a result, have been working toward perfecting my journaling collection. Right now, my students leave the journals at school, but I hope in the future that this can be something that can go between school and home. 

I thought I'd share entry #1. 
For my younger students, I wanted to include an area where they can draw/color a picture of what they are writing/trying to write about. I've found that many of students who stutter are great artists, so many of them thoroughly enjoy discussing their journal entries, when we decide to share as a group.

I have been working toward making a complete book with pages dedicated to strategies, self-rating, and other graphics about stuttering. Likely, the kids will take them home over the summer to look at and remember what they have learned.

Attached below is a copy of prompt #1. This may be inspired by something I've seen in the past, but I honestly can not place where. As of right now, I have 5-7 prompts, but I would LOVE to hear what you would use as a prompt with your students. Before pinning or printing, please leave a comment and tell me what you suggest! I will be sharing them periodically over the next several weeks and I would love to keep the production on-going.

Happy speeching!

I think this is a great idea! I'm not sure what to suggest at this point...

I had a high school age student who stutters read a letter from a younger student that was in the SFA newsletter, then my student did a journal entry to "respond" to the younger student. Would love to hear more ideas

Sounds like a great idea. I will try it with two of my students.
