I love to use this worksheet when we have time off from school. I always hope this time away is spent with family members, and try to prompt them to get the communication rolling. This worksheet is an attempt at that. Give the students an example of one of your own family stories when explaining how to do this. They can fill it out in complete thoughts or sentence fragments, or use it as a guide to write a full story with paragraphs. This can be used throughout the year to develop writing skills as well.
