My Memory Book Creation


I've done a Memory Book with each of my classes for the last few years. Each time it's been
a different format..I've been trying to find my groove, I guess :)
So, this summer, I took the plunge and designed my own lil' book. It includes each
month of the year, a faves page, title page, autograph page, photo booth page, my goals, and I heart page.



For every month I included a picture prompt because I found that my kids had difficulty
thinking of something to draw. I've also included a shorter line in the writing part so that kids will
remember a title at the top of their writing. I am pretty excited about how this turned out!
I bought 1 inch binder rings from Amazon for $5 for 50. I use the rings
to bind together the books as I've found that it's the easiest/most
effective way of binding them. I also like to add special artwork, reading
responses, journal entries to the memory books so they end up
getting pretty thick. I have the kids glue the month to one side of construction paper
and we put something that we did in class on the other side. Then, I laminate the pages.

All work is kept in a file folder until the end of the year. Click on either picture for this document!
