Summer Journal for Elementary Summer Assignments

Summer Journal for Elementary Summer Assignments

Sail Away to a Summer Authentic Writing Experience. Assign this summer writing journal to your students so they maintain their writing skills and write about summer events. This is an engaging writing activity. Students will choose from "topic squares" and write about summer events when they happen. These writing topic squares can be used in the summer journal booklet you create with these cover pages and inside journal pages or you can also use the topic squares to assign with a composition notebook. Choose the pages you like and keep your students writing.

Students are directed to cut out the topic square as summer events unfold, paste it in their booklet or composition notebook; write the date, write about the topic; reread their writing to correct any mistakes. This summer journal can be a great way to start the next school year with sharing summer events.
