This album is a great way to involve families in the classroom and encourage them to share photos that can serve as comforting items for young children. Put the album together by cutting the bottom out of three paper bags, then stack them on top of each other and fold the entire stack in half. Staple the edge of the album and cut out each of the printable pages, glue them to the paper bag pages in the order shown in the finished photos.
Send one album home with each child and families can add photos and help the children color in the pages. They can also add additional photos in the pockets of the paper bags. When the children bring their albums back they can share them with each other and keep them in a place where they are readily available. Children can sit and look at them whenever they are feeling sad or homesick.
