PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These 6 no prep one-page logs give students writing practice and keep track of their reading during vacations and holidays. Use them during Christmas and New Year's Vacation, Spring Break, Summer Vacation, Thanksgiving, and any other vacation that occurs during the school year. Four versions are labeled for the seasons--Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring--another is for a mid-winter break and the last is a generic template that can be used for any holiday.

Each template consists of two parts: a star and a rectangle. In the star section, students write key words or a sentence about science, math, 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 two styles of each template: one that has lines in the center of the star and one without lines. Just print out the template you want students to use and it's ready to go!

Optional activities to extend students' learning are also included in this resource. The information on these templates can be used to give students more writing practice by having them use their notes 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; 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 vacation. In addition, there is information for doing a math task based on what students read while on vacation. Templates for a bar or line graph and for a pie chart are provided for teachers who wish to have their students do that.

These templates are suitable for all students! English Language Learners at beginning proficiency levels can draw pictures or write single words while other students can write phrases or sentences. Save 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.

Students can use these templates to keep track of their reading and do some writing when not in school. But it won't take students a lot of time to complete them each day so they will still have plenty of time to enjoy themselves!
