Keep your students writing on winter break with this exciting idea.
Have the students collect artifacts from the places they go during winter break. Movie tickets, receipts, mall maps, bookmarks from the library, all work for creating a great winter break assignment that non-stressful yet encourages writing..
I have included the template for the filler paper of the journal.
Note: There is a wide ruled and a standard version depending on what grade level you do this assignment with.
Great assignment for 1-6 grade elementary age students. Just make the journals with the right paper (template attached)
It is also teacher tested and it works!
