Get Some...

Here are some complimentary pages to accompany any End of the School Year Memory Book!

The first page is for students to write kind thoughts about their classmates. This can be done in addition to an autograph page. Provide students with the “One Thing I Like About…” page. Each student will write their own name in the rectangle. Then direct students to rotate around the room with a pencil and visit each of their peer’s desks. At each desk, students will write one nice comment or compliment on one line. Remind students to write neatly, use only one line, leave appropriate comments, and write their name after their comment. Upon completion, every student will have a page of comments and compliments to remember their classmates by.

The second page is for an end-of-the-year election! Read each description to the class. Provide explanations if necessary. Students will think of a classmate that the description describes and write that student’s name on the line. Inform students that they can change their votes as needed. However, they can only write another classmate’s name once. Upon completion, gather the election pages and tabulate for results. Sometimes teacher’s votes must help decide.

Last, here is a cute little poem that I found on the Internet years ago. 
I like to give this poem to my students on the last day of school along with a little gift {usually pictures or a slideshow video of class pictures from the school year}.
