Travel Brochures and Creative Writing


I'm sure many of you are enjoying your summer break, and you certainly should be! I promise not to bring the back-to-school anxiety in this post, but I wanted to share a quick writing tip you can easily start planning now.. And it's stress free!

As you, friends, or family travel this summer, ask them to pick up a travel brochure or two from the places they visit. 


When you get back to school, put all of these brochures in a bin in either your classroom library or your writing center.

During stations, one of my writing options is a creative writing trip planner. Students can choose to write in their journals, or the diary templates that I have copies of with the bin.


Students simply pick up a brochure to a place they want to go and read all about it. Then, they can write a diary of all the places they visited along their trip to that location, or they can plan out a vacation with all the places they will stop and make an itinerary.

It's as simple as that! My students LOVE reading all of the brochures, going places in their minds, and planning trips out. I've even had students bring home their itinerary to parents and convince them to go on that vacation! 

I also {love} that some of my students who may never leave our town, get a chance to have a little bit of explorer and culture fun through the brochures.


Another fun thing I learned this summer among our travels is that 4th grade students have free access to all federal parks, forests, lands, and waters. All they have to do is go online to this site and download the free voucher! I can't wait to share this amazing opportunity with my 4th graders when the school year starts!

What are some fun writing opportunities you include in your writing center? I'd love to hear about it!
