This is not your ordinary End of the Year Memory Book. It has original rhymes and summer graphics to engage your students. Pages include:
- Cover page
- I learned
- My Teacher
- Field trip memories
- Favorite Things
- School Events
- Friends and autograph page.
In addition to this memory book is a lesson plan for "A letter to Myself" complete with Letter Templates and Thinking Maps for both boys and girls. I use this as a long term activity. I ask my students to write a letter to themselves telling what they will be when they grow up. I have them address an envelope and put the letters inside. I hold onto these letters.
You can choose when you would like to mail your letters back to your students. You can hold onto them for the summer or wait until a landmark year such as graduation from elementary/middle/high school.
I have also made Have a great..Summer cards for you to give out the end of the year to students (boy and girl versions)
