Year End Books - 2015

Every year I put together a Year End Book for my kids and their parents as a kindergarten keepsake.
Each year I've put a little more time and thought into them and I have to say that this year's is the best.
Click here to check out how I store these pages all year and get a look at last year's.
Most of these pages, you've probably seen before because I blogged about them as we worked on them.  But this is what it looks like when they are all put together!

I love this cover!
The chalk art idea came from pinterest and the border is from Dancing Crayons Designs.

Summer homework pack from Mrs. Jones's Creation Station on TpT and my classroom slideshow dvd on the left.

Picture Perfect gift tags from my TpT store.

Border from Dancing Crayons Designs again.  Chalkboard idea from Pinterest.

All monthly divider pages are from this free set in my TpT store.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom name tree from Deanna Jump.

This page was one that I sent home at the very beginning of the year.  It's from my All About Our Class book set.  All the pages were made into a class book that has been living in our Book Nook all year.  A few days ago, I took all the pages out and filed them into each student's Year End Book.

The wheels on the bus activity from Deanna Jump.

This is a pinterest find and made a great April bulletin board.

This sticker story template came from Miss Kindergarten's All Done Now What bundle.  I used these sticker stories as our writing sample to send to first grade.  They were so cute that I made a copy to send on to first grade and put the original in their Year End Book.

The craft above and the page below are both from First Grade Blue Skies' Cruisin' to Summer craft set.

I LOVE these summer bucket lists from Miss Kindergarten.

I was so sad to have to take down our last stained glass window art.  Now my windows look so bare and sad.

Love this picture and the sweet poem.

Autograph page
And that's a wrap!
Looking at all of the activities we did seems like so long ago.
I am so proud of these Year End Books this year and hope they are a sweet treasure for my students' families.
