PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Spring Break resource perfect for the traveler or staycationer!

Inspiration...
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.

Materials…
• a journal for each student
• a writing utensil
• colored pencils to enhance student thinking


Directions…
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.
