Washington Irving is perhaps best remembered as the author of the short stories “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” and “Rip Van Winkle.” He also had a love of travel and history and wrote many other titles including The Sketch Book which combines beautiful descriptions of historic places with stories, essays, and fiction. Today’s timeline worksheet and notebooking page will teach us more about this notable author and the works that he wrote.
In addition, if you click the printable timeline index cards link below, instead of a single card for recording Washington Irving’s birthday, you’ll find a packet of Irving and literary-themed cards for recording additional facts about his life and work. You might also enjoy this “Rip Van Winkle” copywork printable as well!
