1-2-3 Come Make A Monthly Memory Book With Me

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of my students’ favorite books, so I thought I’d design a memory book as a spin off, not only because it’s a favorite, but because I really think my kiddos creep into my class as shy caterpillars, hungry for knowledge, then flutter away as butterflies at the end of the year, having grown & learned so much.

Why wait 'til the end of the year when you have to try and remember all of the fun things you did, when you can work on this each month.

My students keep their Memory Books in their writing folders.
If you do portfolios, this activity is perfect for that too.

By doing a Memory Book throughout the year, you should see improvement in students’ writing & coloring, which you can refer to during conferences.

Students work on this a little at a time, instead of a zillion pages all at once at the end of the year.

Because everyone teaches different things at different times, I made some extra pages for months like December, so you have additional options.

The “favorites” page is another fun writing prompt for your kiddos. 

There are also a variety of options for June, as I’ve included pages for PK3, Preschool, Young Fives, Kindergarten, First & Second Grades

I made a “my selfie” page for older kiddos.  Have your students do these picture pages the first week of school, and then again at the end of the year.  All I can say is "Wow!" about their progress.

There are 52 page options to choose from. I know your kiddos will really enjoy recording their memories. The packet is just $3.95, but to celebrate back to school, I've knocked a dollar off for a limited time.

Looking at the clip art may help them with their creation. I've also included a full, as well as half page additional iPhone selfie page.

I hope your kiddos enjoy drawing a self portrait of themselves and gluing a real "selfie" photograph. Just this page makes a nice keepsake.  Click on the link to get your copy. My Selfie Portrait Page.

Wishing you a fabulous day, wonderful moments, and the best year yet.
