End of the Year Memory Books

Summer is so close, that I can taste it.  However, a lot of end of the year chores stand in the way between me and some sweet summertime relaxation. I'm hoping to tackle a lot of it this weekend, so I can enjoy my last few days in second grade, and then begin packing up my classroom so I can move to my fourth grade classroom.  I woke up early today, for a weekend, with inspiration for my kiddos' end of the year memory books.  

I always love doing memory books, but the one I usually used required way too much paper.  our district closed a school last summer and moved the teachers to other schools, and cut our supply budget.  Both of those things together mean there is a lot less paper to go around these days.  I might even have to take in a ream from home to get through the week next week. EEKK! 

Anyways, I decided to go green this year and make little memory books, so I could get two pages for each book on a page.  I love using little books in my classroom for math and vocabulary, so I know my kiddos will love these. I teach at a Title One school, so a lot of my kiddos aren't able to purchase yearbooks, and I love being able to send home a little keepsake of memories with them.   Of course, they are the most excited about the autograph pages. :) Especially if I let them use markers. 

I used to teach third grade and my BTF (best teacher friend) is in the same paper predicament, so I slightly modified my second grade booklet to make a third grade one too! 

Original post edit: Since I now teach fourth grade, I have add a fourth grade version! 

If you're interested, all three of these memory books are available at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
