    A Spring Break resource perfect for the traveler or staycationer!


    As an upper elementary to middle school teacher in an urban setting I find that my students don’t tend to travel anywhere for spring break, but they always have a bazillion stories to share about how they spent their days off from school. Instead of asking them all to share about their break, which I want to hear about, but can’t take such an exorbitant amount of time when we need to get back into a routine, I created this Spring Break Tales: A Personal Journal. You can make this as elaborate or as minimal as you see fit. This can be utilized as a full-blow narrative writing resource to get students sharing and writing.


    • a journal for each student

    • a writing utensil

    • colored pencils to enhance student thinking


    1. Provide students with journals to work on during break, after break, or for morning work upon returning from break.

    2. Share your expectations for completion with students.

    3. Have students use their journal to develop a personal narrative of their best or worst “Spring Break Memory”

    4. Utilize the Narrative Writing pages to assist students with the writing process.

    5. Determine if you want students to publish their narrative.

    6. Use each rubric to evaluate student work.

    This is the perfect tool to get students writing and back on track after having a break from their typical school routine.


    Digital Interactive Poetry Notebook for Grades 4-6

    Do you have a Google Classroom? Are you looking for digital ways to incorporate common core skills? As an upper elementary to middle school teacher I have a variety of learners; enthusiastic and engaged, easily inspired, indifferent, and those that require a bit more encouragement to enhance their joy of learning. In addition, I need to incorporate ways to help my students to become more adept at utilizing technology for their daily learning. Can you relate?

    If you are looking for digital resources to help your students thrive in your Google Classroom, this is the perfect ELA poetry tool for them!

    This resource is digital and printable and includes:

    • Teacher Tools for Poetry Instruction

    • Digital Poetry Notebook Cover

    • KWL of Poetry

    • What is Poetry?

    • Poetic Devices #1-2
