"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" is one of my students’ favorite books, so I thought I’d design a memory book as a spin off, not only because it’s a favorite, but because my little ones creep into my class as shy caterpillars, hungry for knowledge, then flutter away as butterflies at the end of the year having grown & learned so much!

This memory book provides an excellent writing activity for your kiddos EACH month.

There are two pages to a template to conserve paper & ink, making this a "just the right size" booklet for little ones to work with.

Why wait 'til the end of the year when you have to try and remember all of the fun things you did, when you can work on this each month. Easy-peasy for you; super-fun for your students.

My students keep their memory mooks in their writing folders.

If you do portfolios, this activity is perfect for that too.

The monthly pages are great for Daily 5 or your writing block.

By doing the memory book throughout the year, you should see wonderful improvement in students’ writing & coloring. This makes them a great resource to refer to during conferences.

Because they are working on this a little at a time, instead of a zillion pages all at once at the end of the year, I feel that children are doing a better job putting forth their best effort, and completed projects will make a wonderful keepsake that's representative of their growth.

Because everyone teaches different things at different times, I made some extra pages for months like December, so you have additional options.

There’s also a generic set of pages with just the month & clip art that say: “ Things I learned and did…” So if my rhyming commentary doesn't fit what you do, you can slip one of these pages in, picking and choosing the ones that are appropriate for your students.

I’ve included a blank page, 2 autograph page options, a note from the teacher page, a birthday page, as well as a “favorites” page that you can also include in your Monthly Memory Book.

Since most teachers do a self-portrait & take a first day of school photo, there’s also a page for that, so you can keep everything all together.

I made a “my selfie” page for older kiddos.

Have your students do these picture pages the first week of school, and then again at the end of the year. All I can say is "Wow!" about their progress!

There are a variety of options for June, as I’ve included pages for PK3, Preschool, Young Fives, Kindergarten, First & Second Grades.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping all of your memories this year are happy ones.
