Product Description
Thank you for taking a peek at my A Blockbuster Year Memory Book. It truly makes a lovely keepsake for students and families. How do I use this book?

✿ I have the kids select one of the covers (many included!) and make a colored copy on cardstock.

✿ I then run the months (pick handwriting line that is best for your grade level) two-sided. The second side is simply a full page. Most of my First Graders don’t usually use the second side the first few months.

✿ In the past, I’ve used a 3-prong folder to keep the book in and glued the cover on the front. This year. I am thinking of simply stapling the book together and forgoing the folder. Not sure yet!

✿ At the end of each month, I gather kids on carpet and we brainstorm our favorite memories of the last month. I record answers. and then they write the entry. Again, the first entry, for most kids, is usually short and the picture isn’t the most detailed. By June, it’s amazing to see the growth of each child: content and handwriting. Parents always “ooh and ahh” when we have our Writing Celebration and they see the completed book. TIP: After I hand out the book for the SECOND month, I have them REREAD the first entry. But before I do, I tell them that even in a month, they have grown as writers and they will see “silly mistakes.” They will want to fix them OR erase the page! Be sure to tell them not to and how they will see SO MUCH GROWTH each month! If they go back and edit/revise each prior entry, it defeats the purpose of this type of memory book.

✿ There are extra memory pages like Autographs, Class Picture, Proud Moments, etc., that can be included as well. One of my colleagues uses them and the other doesn’t. A few are blank in case you wanted to write something in specific to your class. Me? I put the pages in BUT if I don’t get to them in June, I have sent them home to finish. For me, the focus is on the MONTHLY WRITING.
