Story souvenirs are little items that relate to a story!
Place story souvenirs in a gift bag.
Read a fiction and nonfiction book of your choice to introduce a new theme you are studying.
Have students guess what story souvenir is in the bag. Pass them out. I have students keep them at school until the end of the year in their "story souvenir box" (pencil box). They love going back, looking through them and remembering the stories! Students can fill out the sheet to take home and share with their families.
