With this count-down themed end of the year memory book, upper elementary and even middle school students will enjoy reflecting on their top ten memories from the school year. They will also enjoy counting down the days left in school. There is also a cover for top 5 memories if you prefer to just complete it the last five days of school.
You can buy my Memory Book BUNDLE by clicking HERE.
Also, scroll down for other memory book options.
The title of the memory book is "Counting Down the Top Ten School Memories from ___ Grade". Kids will be reflecting on and writing about a memory a day for the last ten days of school (or 5 if you choose to only do 5).
I have this marked as 'big kids' because I made it with no cutesy graphics. It is suitable for boys and girls in any upper grade. It uses fun fonts and numbers and it is a banner style booklet once cut out.
NOTE: Although I have it marked for kids in middle school, you should use your best judgement based on my description as to whether you think it will work for your class.
Directions are included in the pack, but you are going to have your students construct the book before the count down begins. Then on day ten, they will complete the page that has a ten on it. They will also cut off the 'ten' on the side of the booklet showing that there are now 9 more days of school and 9 more memories to complete. Each day until the end of the year, they will cut off a number before they complete the page. When the last day of school comes, they will have cut off all of the numbers on the side of the book and just have a cute memory book with ten pages of school memories.... a perfect keepsake for the year.
On each page there is a large number for the day that kids can decorate. There is a title box at the top of the page. There are lines to write a few sentences about the memory. There is an illustration area.
My ideas are just suggestions, but you can feel free to use this in your classroom however you would like.
