Lesson #10113

Looking for a creative way to share adorable school trip or vacation photos? Look no further than this fun scrapbook page.

Grade Level:

Encourage students, as they follow the writing process, to explore anything from simple sentences to five-paragraph essays. These scrapbook pages can support writing exercises in all major subject areas, as well as current events. Students may be prompted to explore any genre to express ideas. Older students can explore library resources to develop research-based writing. Second-language learners can relate to given themes to develop writing skills. Through creative writing, the teacher can develop a unique classroom library featuring students as authors.

Create fun scrapbooks and journal pages that celebrate school field trips and memorable moments throughout the year. Use as a writing prompt and share with parents on Back-to-School Night or Open House!
