When students have to miss school for a trip or vacation, send a fun vacation log with them to document their adventures! This provides the teacher with an activity for them to complete while they're away, and provides the student with a quick and meaningful outlet for reflecting on their trip. When they return, students will have an organized log from which to share their experiences.
In this pack, their are 9 different logs to choose from, with varying levels and activities. Each log was designed to fit on one page, and to be completed in 5-10 minutes each day by the student. These pages were created to be quick reflections for each day of the student's trip. In my class, I create a folder for students going on a trip, containing the classwork they will miss, in addition to one of these logs. Each comes with two labeling styles: "Monday through Friday" or "Date:____."
Grade suggestions have been provided for each log set (grades 1-5).
I know this will be a helpful tool for you! Enjoy!
