Slide1

Here is my finished Kindergarten Memory Book! Just in time school is out on Friday! I have the blank books all put together by the second week of school so I can glue in the children's items at the end of each month.

I just love our little Leprechaun hand prints and finger painted shamrocks.

We went on a spring egg hunt to the park. Bunny ears and all! The best part was a Peep Race. The 5 classes competed in a peep chewing relay. Hysterical!!

Don’t you just love their photo with the monkey and safari hat!

Every year we have and End of Year Sing. This is the cover of our program. This year all classes will sing , then come back to their classrooms for a fun award and then we will all have a picnic lunch together. Awards include things like Most Creative, Future Comedian, Future Architects, Future Author etc! Everyone gets an award.

Our school mascot is the Lee Leopard. Each child will also receive a Leo Medallion. Well I’m off to finish all these goodies. I hope you all are winding down and ready for a great Summer!

  3. We do something very similar here is WA. I love your idea of putting together the books and glue throughout the year. I have learned to use a large piece of construction paper with the months art project/writing and hang it on the wall. Then, it becomes a page in our book. The only bad part is the binding at the end, but the parents love it :)

    1. Hi April,
      We make a new quilt every month. Many of them are on my website kinderbykim.com. I just use curling ribbon to whip stitch the books in advance. It's very sturdy that way and so much more jazzy than staples:) Kim
