Include fun writing prompts for the end of the school year, and let students combine their writing into a memory book! This includes many pages that you can pick and choose. Not only is this keepsake book a good way to store memories, dream, and reflect, but writing is always a great way to incorporate higher order thinking skills because of the creativity involved in it!
Includes Three Versions:
•PDF with colorless pages for printing
•JPG images in color for use with programs like Seesaw. Simply upload and have students draw and write on it. These images can also be used in other programs like Google Slides for Google Classroom use and PowerPoint Online for Microsoft Teams.
•PDF in color flattened with the ability for you to delete any pages you choose. This can be used in programs like Seesaw or others that will allow you to upload a PDF and let students draw and write on them. The PDF lets you use more pages together at once in Seesaw, since images are limited to 10 there. However, with a PDF, you can have 20 pages that you can modify by deleting extras like a grade level page in for third grade when you just need the one for first grade.
Everything is in landscape view and formatted well for being used digitally.
****I just added the options to make this digital friendly. I will add directions later, but you can find a bunch of tutorials online for adding PDFs to Google Slides and adding images into Seesaw.*****

With this end of year memory book, you don't need to visit 5 stores gathering supplies, spend an afternoon smelling melting plastic from a laminator, or even cut out a single thing. This activity is engaging, something students can hold onto for years, and adds that end of the year fun element! This end of the year, simply print and go! Then run out the doors for summer! Oh, yeah!
*A note about digital use with Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams: These programs do not really offer easy ways to illustrate. However, I do have a link to a free tech course included that will show you how your students can create images in other programs and import them into Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams.
This end of year memory book is for personal use only and one license is for one classroom. Multiple licenses may be purchased for a discount.
Thank you for stopping by The Candy Class! I hope your end of the year is extra special and this memory book helps students remember their year with you always!
