Product Description
Students can use these templates for writing practice over Spring Break, Summer Vacation, Thanksgiving vacation, Christmas and New Year's holidays, and any other vacations that occur during the school year. Filling out one of these reading and writing logs should take students around 15 - 30 minutes each day.

Give your students even more writing practice by having them use the information on their logs to write paragraphs or compositions either during their vacation or after their return to school. An organizer is included in this product to help students do that. Pages for writing a first draft and a final copy are provided and each of those pages comes in lined and unlined styles. The organizer can also be used as a discussion aid -- in pairs or small groups, students can talk with each other about how they spent their vacations. In addition, there is information for doing a math task based on what students read during their break. Templates for a bar or line graph and for a pie chart are provided if you would like your students to do that.

These templates are suitable for all your students! English Language Learners at beginning proficiency levels can draw pictures or write single words while other students can write phrases or sentences. Save your students' work in portfolios and at the end of the school year, they can review their responses and write about the kinds of observations they anticipate they will make during their summer vacation.

There are 6 templates in all, 4 that are labeled for the seasons plus 1 for a mid-winter break and another generic template that can be used for any holiday. Each template consists of 2 parts: a star and a rectangle. In the star section, students write key words or a sentence about science and math activities they do and social studies observations they make during their break. They also write about how they help at home and what they read, and they write a general description of what they have done on their holiday. In the rectangle section, students list what they read during their break. There are 2 styles of each template: 1 that has lines in the center of the star and 1 without lines. Just print out the template you want your students to use and you're ready to go.

These templates are a great way to encourage your students to read and write during their school breaks!
