Memory Books

OOOOOHHHH Memory Books!
I have a love/hate relationship with my memory books. I love how cute and adorable they are and I think every kindergartner should have one. They just take sooooooo much time. Seriously, over 100 hours throughout the year. Thank goodness they are on-going throughout the year.

Below is an example of my memory book for my kinders. It changes from year to year since we do new activities and projects. Overall, this is it.... (I forgot the cover...I need to get a picture and update it).

The cover has their name on it (done from wordle), along with a class picture and kindergarten ABC poem.....image coming soon.
