Two Free Pages - End of the Year Memory Book

Another school year is coming to a close! During this time, I always tried to help students reflect on their school year, share memories, and have some fun! One way I did that was a with an End-of-the-Year Memory Book. It was always my favorite project and a big hit with students!

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

I included everything in this book – at least everything I could think of! In all, it has 29 pages of activities for students. Best of all, you can pick and choose the activities you want. If you have a lot of time to fill, you can do them all. If you only have a day or two, choose the activities students would like best instead. Regardless of how busy you are, there is an option for you.

Here is a closer look:

IMPLEMENTING IN THE CLASSROOM

There are so many ways to use this End-of-the-Year Memory Book to fit your needs. One thing to note, you do not need to have students complete every activity. Each page is a separate stand-alone activity, so you can select the pages you would like your students to complete. Also, I provide different templates for many of the activities to fit your classroom. For example, if you are the students’ only teacher, you would use the “My Awesome Teacher” page. If you part of team, you can use the “Terrific Teachers” page.

Once you have picked and printed the pages you want students to complete, you can decide how and when students will work on their memory books. If you just picked a few pages, this memory book can easily be a last day of school activity. If you want to do all the pages, you could have students use this as morning work or a daily activity that they work on regularly over the last few weeks of school.

Assembling this resource is really simple, too. You could give students one page each day and assemble after completion of all pages, or you could assemble the memory book first and have students work at their own pace. This resource was made to fit what works best for you and your students.
