The goal of this packet is to get children writing every day in an authentic way while they are on vacation! This product contains 26 printable pages for compiling a customized travel journal. There are scripted prompts as well as open-ended pages for children to write about their daily experiences. For teachers sending a journal home with a student who will be absent, I have also included a sample letter to the parents.
Before leaving on the trip, print the desired pages and put them into a 3-prong folder for portability and durability. I highly recommend choosing a folder with pockets for storing mementos along the way! Then, work with your learner to complete the pages before, during and after the trip. You will need to take a pencil with an eraser, colored pencils or crayons, and a small pencil sharpener. Scissors and glue are recommended but not required.
