Memory Books / End of the year gifts

Finally back to the blog world. It feels good to be back. I am officially on summer break but plan on going into school a couple days because I am moving classrooms and want some things done now and not waiting until the fall. Praise and all the Glory to God for providing me a job this year, that I am not laid off, and I know where I will be for the following year. Does anyone else feel like they are becoming a better teacher because of all these blogs? I feel like everyone sharing all these great and fabulous ideas have improved my teaching and made me look at things in a new way. Speaking of great blogs Little Warriors at is having a give away. She is giving away Portfolio/Memory book pages. Let me tell you they look super cute. They will be great for next year for my memory things that I give the children. Here is a picture of the memory packets that I give each student. I found this cute poem online that I give the students, and I also take a picture with each student and just me. They loved it! Come back this week to check out the other items that I give my students at the end of the year.

I know most of you lucky teachers are already done for the summer but I thought I would share this idea. This is my summer writing journal that I make for students. The best part is it is free! I have the parents send in empty fun cereal boxes. Make sure to write in the notes to the parents about them being fun and having cartoons on it. Then I just cut them so that you just have the front of the box and the back of the box for the front cover and back cover. I bind them together or you can staple them. The best boxes to ask for are the family size or extra cereal. If you get the smaller boxes I just put it on card stock or construction paper. If you give parents enough time you will get the ones you want and enough! Inside I attached their blends chart, things to write about sheet, word families, and abc chart. Also, I put a list of things that they can write about in the summer.

Thank you to everyone who is following me and left me a comment. The world of blogging is just fantastic! I put everyone that is a follower, left me a comment, posted about my give away and added me on tpt because a lot of people added me but didn’t leave me a comment so I just want to be fair to everyone. We have two lucky winners who get to pick two flowers from the colors. The two winners are Ali with and Donna Congrats, I hope you love them as much I do! You both can pick two colors from the picture. I will be emailing you both.

I am going to start selling these flowers since I am making them so much for people. You can purchase the flower as a hair clips, or I can make them as a flower pin that can pin on items. Please send me a email at if you would like to buy them. They are great for all ages. I wear them all the time, plus my niece looks darling in them. They make any bad hair day look good. They are 5.00 dollars which includes sending them out.
