Kindergarten Scrapbooks Are Done!!!


 SO SWEET!!!!!
I am doing the happy dance...my scrapbooks are done!!!  Here are what they ended up looking like this year~  The kids love them and the parents do, too.  Our PTO is soooooo nice and allows us to take our photos to Walgreens for development!!  After I take a picture, we always use it as a writing prompt, so there is a literacy connection too, more than just the memories of kindergarten.  Don't have photoshop on my school computer, so sorry about using the rocks/coins/tape for hiding faces!!  What is the best way to shadow pictures if you don't have photoshop....we would love to hear!!  Well one more thing off of the to do list...now onto the next one for tomorrow!!

The album came from Dollar General. There are only $1. I have learned over the years to stay on top of it month by month. I have become smarter too by keeping the templates of what I write on my computer and just changing things as we go. Parent volunteers put the pictures and yellow sheets in for me. Parents say they keep them for high school graduation.

This is SO sweet - I love it!! At my school we make a DVD for each kid of the pictures throughout the year; it is special but I love how personalized this is!

The scrapbooks turned out AWESOME!
I am sure your students and their parents will treasure these forever. I want to do this with my class next year. I am a scrapbooker myself, so I have lots of supplies. Thanks for sharing such a great idea.

These books are wonderful! What a wonderful way to end the school year!
The one picture of May had the life cycle of the butterfly and the hungry caterpillar - is that from your TPT?
Thanks for the nonsense packet words- we used those everyday with our intervention groups! Will you be planning to more "DIBELS" stuff??
Thanks and take care-

Really Cute!! I really like how you typed the cards to go along with the pictures. I have done albums several times with my first graders but I did not do a good job this year with taking pictures :o(

So, I just did a group picture!!

These books are so cute!!!!!! I love how there is a mix of individual and class pics w/discriptions of activities. I'm sure the parents and students love these! I send home pics as I take them but I love how you compile them! Thanks for sharing these!
I want to be on top of pic taking next year to do these:)

Thank you for sharing! Those are beyond cute! Do you have your pirate cover to share? My classroom is pirate themed and I love it!

Busy Bees said...

I have it. I will send it your way as soon as I find it.

Thanks for sharing your scrapbook - so cute! Next year I want to do a better job at taking pictures.

I use pixler.com to mask things in my pictures. It is just like Photoshop but online and free. :)
