Are you a teacher who just had a parent inform you they are taking their child out of school for a vacation? Looking for a project for your students to complete during holiday breaks? Consider a core standards aligned travel journal.
This Copy and Go Edition of My Travel Journal contains the same activities as My Travel Journal, Grade 1
, but in a more accessible format for those not wishing to create a large, full-color, cut-n-paste into a scrapbook type of project. This edition has been reformatted into a black and white set of pages which can simply be copied and sent home, ready to fill out and bring back after the trip has been completed. There is also a letter for the parents with the information they need to help their student complete the journal.
Leave the heavy textbooks at home! Have your students make something they will keep and love for years. It will make for a fabulous show and tell!
The activities in this journal have been aligned to the Common Core Standards for Language Arts and Math and also have been aligned to the California State Standards in Science and Social Studies for 1st grade.
My Travel Journal, Grade 1 contains writing activities, charting weather, tallying landforms and license plates, math activities, places for pictures and journal entries and much more.
If you download the free preview you will be able to see five pages of the 23 page journal.
I came up with this journal after being faced with the prospect of two loooonnngg car trips with my children in tow! Having my first grade twins work on these journals was a sanity saver. They also are very proud to show their work off, and I still catch them reading through their travel journals with smiles on their faces.
