Personal Binder and Memory Books

Aloha everyone!  The year is winding down quickly and I am preparing for that last week to keep my class busy.

I have copied off all of my pages for my Aloha Memory Book, and now I am binding them up with my latest classroom tool.

I got this from and it is a great little binder to have in class or at home.  It's small enough that I can take it back and forth whenever I have a project.

You can see it in comparison to the glue bottle.  It is pretty simple to use and you can punch up to 5 papers at a time.  It was great for my little booklets.

I also have my own stash of combs when I need them.

Yay, all done and ready to go for next week!

I also wanted to share a sweet Memory Book that my room parent put together for me for Teacher Appreciation Week.

Apparently she had sent home a note and a template for each student to fill out.  The kids then returned the envelopes to her and she put it all together.

These were absolutely adorable and I cried while reading it.  The kids were scared for a minute until I told them that they were tears of joy.  They all gave me lots of hugs and I cried a little bit more.

I have to say I had the most fantastic room parent, and if you ask me I think she could start making her own products to sell on TpT.  I couldn't help thinking  "I love this template, can I get a copy?"

Are you making memory books with your class, or do you make other items?  I know some of you get very crafty and I am always looking for fun new ideas.
