Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hi Everyone! I am new to K this year and was just informed that I have to create an end of the year memory book for each of my students. Does anyone have any ideas they would be willing to share? I have to include pictures and work from the beginning of the year and end of the year. Please Help!!

The easiest is to do them in a scrapbook. You can then save art projects, writing samples, etc. from throughout the year and glue them in. I take a lot of pictures throughout the year and include them in their scrapbooks. I try to do at least one or two art projects a month to go in them and usually include a writing or math project each month as well. They are a lot of work but the end result is always wonderful. If you've got parent volunteers gluing into scrapbooks is a great job for them.

I make a DVD of the hundreds of pictures I take throughout the year and set it to a bunch of our favorite songs! It's a huge success with the kids and families! I just use Windows Movie Maker. This won't work if you have to include their work though.

I make a paper memory book too. I include:
first day and last day self portraits
a name writing sheet with their names from Sept., Jan., and May.
some work samples
a page of favorite things
a place for autographs of their classmates
a class picture
a hundreth day picture and writing
leprechaun trap picture and writing
some of their pages from class books that I take apart at the end of the year

Hope that helps - you can have them write about anything throughout the year and include it!

3-ring binder

We use a 3-ring binder and page protectors. It is the easiest way I have found. I start at the beginning of the year. When we do something, I date it, and laminate it or put it in a page protector. Then I either keep them in a folder or go ahead and put them in the binders. Close to the end of the year I add poems for each month that kind of explain what we did. If you start now, it won't be so stressful in the end!

when we did this, we did a page a month with an art project and a picture of something we did...the pic might be a group or individual shot...we made ours with 12x18 paper and used a binding machine to bind the books together...

Who told you to do it? That sounds pretty weird. I LOVE making memory books for the kids but it sure gets pricey....I get some donations and some parent help putting some of the pages together but woe. I can't imagine someone telling me I HAVE to do it. It's pretty much my gift to the kids (although I do ask for 20 sheet protectors and a 1-inch 3 ring binder from each child).
