make a scrapbook/yearbook for my students. I prepare 5-8 pages of questions and
sentence starters for them to fill out or get others to fill out. I put pictures
and borders on the pages for them to color. I get my question ideas from things
that are going on the the news, senior memory books, scrapbooks etc. I make it
different and personal for each group of kids every year. I give the kids about
45 min - 1 hour to fill in and color the pages. Then we start going around the
room to get autographss, phone numbers, addresses, friends to fill in information
and the like. We also allow a time for the kids in our team to mix and mingle
and fill in each others books. I put out photos that I have taken all year and
allow them to cut and glue those in as well. I include a page for teachers to
write on (I think ahead on what I want to say for each kid and have it ready).
Our kids really loved doing this last year and it took up most of the morning
on the last day of school.
