Product Description
While creating a precious keepsake, this yearlong memory book project will guide you in teaching your K-2 students how to write personal narrative paragraphs. They’ll learn the process of brainstorming ideas, choosing one, filling in a graphic organizer (web), and then writing a paragraph including a topic sentence, detail sentences, and a closing sentence.

You’ll begin this exciting project on the first day of school by taking a picture of each student to glue onto the second page of the book. There are other beginning of the year informational and skills pages to fill in during the first couple of weeks of school.

Then, at the end of each month, your students will write about their favorite school activity, project, or lesson that occurred during that month. There are also special event/activity pages for writing additional paragraphs. I LOVE having tons of meaningful, purposeful narrative writing prompts!


CUSTOMIZE THE MEMORY BOOK FOR YOUR CLASSROOM

There are lots and lots of pages to choose from to customize your classroom memory books.

In addition to all the pages I’ve included in this product, if you have a special event you’d like a page for, or if your school calls a special event, activity, or class something different than what I have in this product, message me on Teachers Pay Teachers and I will custom make the pages for you for free!


I’ve prepared and included everything you’ll need, even detailed lesson plans, so you can get going with this special project right away.

FAQ:

Q: “How can I expect kindergartners to write a whole personal narrative paragraph?”

A: You can’t, especially at the beginning of the school year! In kindergarten, there is such a wide range of abilities, you’ll have different expectations. Whatever each student is developmentally ready for is what you’ll encourage him or her to do. You’ll want your kinders to keep the topic in mind as they: draw pictures, write letters, write words, or write simple sentences.

If you have some more capable students, I would pull them into a small group and go through the process for writing a paragraph as I detail in the lesson plans.

Toward the end of the school year, with lots of modeling, you’ll find that many of your students are making great progress toward the goal of paragraph writing, and some will have achieved it!
