These journals are just waiting for you to give them purpose. Blank top pages and ruled with a dotted midline, there are some small differences between the grade levels. The younger grade journal has 24 pages with a half page blank-top with slightly wider ruled lines. Facing each journal page is a blank left-hand page for spelling practice, graphic organizers, or additional free writing/drawing.
The older grade level contains 40 double-sided pages, slightly narrower ruled lines, and only a 1/3 of a page blank-top.
These both have space for lists of words on the inside cover, but again, the older grade level allows for about twice as many words. - Zach
