End of the year "DOODLE NOTES style"- Memory Book Newspaper. This is a upbeat way to learn from your students at the end of the school year.

This is a great way to find out which classroom activities are the most memorable! Students are asked to reflect on their classroom experiences and share them in a fun newspaper format. Encourage your students to be self-reflective as you yourself reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of your teaching practice this year.
Suggestions for use:
-Add these to your annual teaching portfolio to showcase your impact on student growth.
-Bind your student's completed newspaper sheets to make a memory book to show your students next year!
-Create a newspaper-themed bulletin board as a final farewell to your students. Kids love to guess who is who in the articles posted in the hallway!
-Print on 11 x 17 for an authentic newspaper look.
