I can’t even believe it’s THAT time of year again…the end of the year! As you prepare to send your students off for the summer and on to the next grade, you want to make sure that you send them off with their memories in hand.
These FREE half page memory books are ready to print and go. Students will reflect on the last year (and you get in some last minute writing practice!) and look back on their academic improvements, best memories, and can get signatures from their classmates. As the year winds down, we know that teachers have so much to do with tons of things to do to get ready for report cards, end of year records, and readying your classroom for summer. When you hand out memory books, students start busily writing down all of their memories and filling out all of the pages, which gives you so previous time to prepare for the summer!
Teacher Tip: Does your school do a yearbook signing day? Do you have students who didn’t get a yearbooks and feel left out? Problem solved! I have found that when yearbooks come out there are always a few students who didn’t get to purchase a yearbook. I printed off some of these memory books, and handed them to the students who didn’t have a yearbook. On yearbook signing day, these kids felt included and were excited even though they didn’t get the official school yearbook. They had their memory book that were able to ask their classmates to sign, and still had a great keepsake from the school year.Teacher Tip: Budgets running low at the end of the year? Paper supply running low? We were always under a paper or copier count shortage at the end of the year so the smaller size was a fun size and helped our school budget! I used whatever paper was left in the copy room, random color papers, and students loved that their book was multi colored!
