I created this free resource to provide children with valuable writing practice while on vacation and to save teachers time in preparing for a student’s absence. It is fairly common for a parent to send in a note reading, “We’ll be going to Disney tomorrow and little Johnny will be out of school for a week. Please send home work so he won’t fall behind.”
As teachers we realize that we can’t put all of the important lessons and activities that take place our classrooms into a photocopied packet of worksheets, but it is possible to send along some work that will be beneficial. A family vacation is a great time for students to gain real world writing experience by journaling about their adventures. The bonus is that the finished product is a wonderful keepsake for the family.
This packet includes both primary- and intermediate-ruled writing pages specific to a typical Disney vacation. It also includes blank journaling pages with room for illustrations so you could use this packet for any family vacation.
