Student Travel Journal: Writing Prompts

Print and go!

Recently, a student went on an overseas family holiday during the school term and subsequently missed lots of learning.

In an attempt to keep this student connected and engaged in learning, I created a personalised travel journal for her to take on her trip. I decided to keep it simple, adding some question prompts as well as space for writing or drawing.

When she returned from her trip, she was so excited to share her experiences. She answered the questions, drew illustrations and kept travel tickets. The question prompts were really useful for this particular student and she did a wonderful job sharing this with the class on her return to school. Her face lit up as she was telling her stories and other students had lots of questions for her too.

It was a great way to make her feel welcome back and that this trip had not impacted her connections with other students.
