1-2-3 Come Make A Memory Booklet With Me!
Since I truly enjoy designing stuff, I like to give all sorts of options to my visitors. Because the Memory Books I've created have been such popular downloads, I thought I'd putz with some more memory-making activities.
I wanted to come up with something a little less involved for teachers who are in a time-crunch, so I used my "flip for facts file folder" idea and designed something that would be perfect for a mini memory booklet.
I call it "These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things..." and even included the first musical bar from the sheet music, for that finishing touch on the template.
I've included templates for preschool through fifth grade, plus a blank one to fill in with whatever. Make a sample to share with your students to help explain what you want them to do.
To save you time, I've included the inside page that I dreamed up, if you want to use it. To expedite things, especially for little ones, pre-cut the folders, so that the templates fit nicely on the page.
A room helper can assist little ones, or send the page home for parents to work one-on-one with their child to fill in and then send back to assemble.
Students glue the "These are a few of my favorite things..." page to the front and then cut on the lines so that each of the 9 sections flip open to reveal their answers.
To add a bit more pizzazz, have students choose a different colored marker/pencil to write each answer. Adding a school photo at the top adds the finishing touch.
I've included an autograph template that students can glue on the back. If you're really pressed for time, have everyone sign one paper and then run off a copy for everybody. (This way you can easily get signatures from the principal, secretaries, librarian etc.)

Thanks for visiting today. Feel free to PIN away. My "Pin it" button is at the top. I hope that the last few weeks with your kiddos are especially memorable, and that in some small way I helped make things less hectic for you.
