This is a guide for putting together an end of year writing portfolio memory book for each student in your class. It is something that the teacher needs to plan all year, so there are enough student writing samples to build the portfolio.

Upon completion, the portfolio showcases an entire year of writing for a student. It demonstrates student growth and accomplishments, and parents love the final product!

The product is a zipped file with a PDF document and an editable PowerPoint file to personalize the checklists, student directions, and student pages for your classroom. The PDF document includes the procedure I follow to help my students create their portfolio, but the project can be adapted to fit the needs, assignments, and writing level of any class or grade level.
