Class Yearbook (Memory Book)
Every year I do a yearbook with my class. I usually start it a couple of weeks before school is out. You can choose to use all the pages or pick the ones you like best to include in the yearbook. In the past, my yearbook was only five pages.
I also add photographs by inserting blank copy pages where I want the photos to go. The kids glue them in. In addition I add work that I saved from the beginning, middle, and end of the year. This is entirely optional.
This yearbook can be whatever you want it to be. I’ve even considered having the kids trace their hand and making a picture out of it…just for the memory.
You can copy the pages on colorful paper with black ink or on white paper with colorful ink. Do what works for you.
I made each page a little different so that the children stay interested. This year I had the class memory/yearbooks bound at the UPS store. They made them look like spiral notebooks. I laminated the front and back covers beforehand. The manager gave me a special price of $1.25 a book. They are so cute!
On TpT I am selling my class yearbook/memory book. The pages included are:
All About Me
In the Lunchroom
Our Field Trip
Something I Learned
Something Funny That Happened
I Lost __Teeth
People Around School
Dear 25 Year Old Me
Acrostic Poem About School
Poem About School
I hope you enjoy this activity as much as I do.
