Memory Book - Looking Back

I have been having so much fun this weekend organizing my students' memory books.  We used Katie Mense's Kindergarten Portfolio and Memory Book this year and I have loved it!  This was my very first purchase on Teachers Pay Teachers and it started my whole TpT obsession.

Each month we completed an ABC writing page, a numbers writing page, and a self-portrait.  Most months we have also completed an extra page that goes with a theme of the month.  I have to say the self-portrait pages have been my favorites.  I loved looking at how they drew themselves in August and how they draw themselves now.  So cute!!!  Little circles with arms and legs sticking out have turned into pictures of people with a head, body, arms, legs, all the good stuff {lol}.

The "theme" page for May was a Memories page.  First we made a list of things that the students remembered.  It was so much fun to see what the students' favorites were. Some of the things they came up with were the Halloween party, the Valentine's Day party, Field Day, and jumping over candlesticks.  {When we read Jack Be Nimble, my bestie brought candlesticks to school and the kids jumped over them a la Jack.}   Here are a few pictures of my students' memories.  :)

I had forgotten about bowling at our Halloween party.  :)

I love how his shark is saying "Grr."

That's a fire truck spraying all kids on Field Day.  

This student did a great job drawing the tunnel walk through at the Shark Reef.   

We only have 3.5 days left with the kids.  It's amazing how quickly the year has gone by.  I'm so proud of all my students!  I will probably be a blubbering idiot tomorrow at our Kindergarten Promotion Ceremony.  lol

On a side note, I had extra pieces for my raccoon craft and Colton decided he wanted to make one.  Personally, I think his is much cuter than mine.  :)
