End of the Year Scrapbook Idea for Teachers and Students

End of the Year Scrapbook Idea for Teachers and Students

With the end of the school year coming up quickly, now is the time to start thinking about creating a gift for students graduating from your class.  Mary Anne, a 2nd Grade Teacher from Pennsylvania, sent us this idea that combines her love for scrapbooking with her love for her students.

Scrapbooking Idea for the End of the School Year

I like to scrapbook in my “spare” time and am always taking pictures of my students. At the end of the year, I make an easy scrapbook page for each student to take home and keep. Each page includes a group photo from our field trip, another group photo from our annual “Cowboy Day,” a photo of each child working or playing, and a photo of each child with me.

I print the photos out, crop them, and then mount each set of photos on scrapbook paper that coordinates with our school theme. Finally, I add some subtitles next to the group photos, as well as a little note from me to each student. The pages are similar in design, so assembling one for each student doesn’t take more than an hour or two. I get many compliments and words of thanks from the children and parents alike who appreciate the pages. I always feel good when they leave with this special keepsake in hand.

    You can also use some of the pictures and scrapbook materials to create a cover for their Summer Reading Response Journal.

    Help them make reading goals and you can print questions on colored paper and cut out with craft scissors.
