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.
