This Classroom Traveling Book is an excellent way for your students to introduce his/her school family to their home families. This is something that I created with every class I taught. I'm so glad that I did as I now have a collection of over 20 "Classroom Traveling Books". I love looking at them with such fond memories!
Each student takes a book page home to complete with their families. When the pages are returned I put together the book. I use a binder (with a clear pocket front for the cover) and binder sleeves to protect the pages. The clear sleeves are important because they protect the pictures as the book travels from home to home. I also include "Family Autograph" pages at the end of the book. Most parents and/or students write special notes on them.
It's never too late in the year to start this book! I hope you enjoy this memory maker as much as I have!
