Pixar Short Daily Journal Prompts (36 Weeks | Full Year)

Original price was: $17.78.Current price is: $11.56.

This bundle of Pixar Short Daily Journal Prompts are for a full year. There are 180 individual journal prompts, one for each day of the week for 36 weeks. Each week students analyze one Pixar Short ranging from 2 to 7 minutes (see the list of Pixar Shorts in the description). Challenge students to infer and analyze characters, theme, setting, and plot, while also reflecting on deeper questions about friendship, bravery, innovation, the consequences of actions, resilience, and the magic of the everyday.

Note: This product does not grant access to the Pixar shorts themselves, which can be found on various video streaming platforms, including Disney+.

The prompts in this resource are very similar to the video guide questions in the Pixar Short Video Guide Super-Duper AMAZING Bundle SAVE 50% | 30 PACK. If you don’t want journal prompts, this resource probably what you are looking 🙂

General Tips for Using This Resource:

  1. This resource can either be projected for all students, or the Google Slides file can be shared with each student and they can write directly on each slide their response for the day.
  2. Remind students to have their notebooks or tablets ready. Play the Pixar Short. Encourage students to focus entirely on the video. No talking or distractions.
  3. Give students 5 minutes to answer the journal prompt question. This time should be continuous writing time. Focus on writing and flow, not necessarily perfect grammar, content, etc.
  4. Teachers can decide how often to replay the Pixar Short depending on their schedule, ranging from everyday to once per week.
