January Scrapbook Pages

08 February 2011
I do a scrapbook type activity with the students each month.  I utilize the teacher resource book Making Memories.  Each month the students listen to and color in a poem, color in a heading, and complete a small writing prompt.  I then take their photograph and complete a hand print activity. 

For January, I decided not to follow the book's hand print activity, but instead to make a penguin to go with our penguin theme unit.  This month's photograph was taken of each student with his/her head through a snowman cutout.  The snowman scene was made by a very talented classroom aide.

I house the pages of the scrapbook in plastic page protectors in a small three ring binders.  At the end of the year, I send the scrapbooks home.  The parents treasure the scrapbooks and love to see both the physical and academic growth their child has made in a school year.
