I have turned this into my Kindergarten Memories.
So often, the students live in the NOW, they forgot the things we did a few weeks ago. So at the end of each month, we list all the things we did that we found memorable. For the month of September we had a TON!
Coming to school
Making new friends
Magnus's Birthday (etc)
Then from the list we pick one that is our very favorite! This is a little tricky for me, I have to sell the one I want to pick the most because I have an AM and PM class, and they share the memory board. But I'm not cheating (I don't think).
Then we make a scrapbook page that I file away. This is September's page:
We picked that we made the gingerbread man. The students write their names at the top. So hopefully we can see handwriting progression throughout the school year. I put a picture like a scrapbook page on the actual paper.
I then add the memory to the memory board. Simple and pretty easy!
It takes very little time. Then at the end of the school year I bind them and they have a perfect little kindergarten memory book!
I love it!
