This package contains writing prompts to invite parents to write and reminisce with their children at home. The prompts can be sent home as often as you like, but I recommend sending one home monthly or bimonthly. Students love to read their stories during morning meetings or during share circle, and they are highly motivated to revisit their stories once they are displayed on a wall.
Save the written narratives to make a memory book keepsake. A cover page for an end of the year memory book is included in the contents.
