I created this product to accompany the writer’s workshop model. The last unit is all about memoirs. This is a great way for them to reflect on their time as an elementary student and re-live their first years in school.
You could present the assignment to them during the last weeks of school. Sit in a circle trading stories while the students remember who’s class they were in, where they attended school, what funny things happened, etc and it’s a great time of sharing and reflection for my students. Some of them have been in school together for 6 years! Transitioning to another, bigger school is often scary and they will love sharing this assignment with their peers as it serves as a great memory.
This can be used in a couple ways:
A true flip book from K to grade 5
For individual years in school
There are 3 versions for the cover for you to choose from. If you are not using this for the 5th grade, there are blank covers for the students to write their grade in.
