I’m quickly stopping by to share some updates I’ve made to my End of the Year Memory Books! I’m SO excited to do these with my kiddos. Our whole grade level does these each year and the kids absolutely LOVE THEM. These books are a fun way to celebrate and reflect on the year. Plus, they are SUPER simple to prep and make a fun keepsake that families will treasure forever. In previous years, we’ve just stapled the books together, but this year I picked up 70 cheap folders from Staples (you know the kind I’m talking about…cheap, but do the job!) for all of the first graders.
On the front of the folder, we’ll glue this cute cover sheet and color it!
Then, on the inside, we’ll fill it will all kinds of sweet memory book pages!
Here are samples of some of the pages:
My favorite are these class yearbook pages. Students can write the names of their classmates on the lines (or you could write them and photo copy), and then they can draw each student’s “yearbook picture” in the oval.
Here are some of the other pages in the packet:
