A practical way to include all the memories of a school year!

Have you ever wanted to come up with a practical way to include all the memories of a school year? I know I did.  I wanted a way to organize, and keep  memories for my kiddos and their parents. I also  wanted it to be a way I could chart professional growth as in a Portfolio.  With all the demands in the classroom, it was getting harder and harder to accomplish a memory/portfolio.

My Best Writer’s Workshop Tip

One of the best things I ever did in Writers Workshop was to introduce topic cards.  My kindergartners seemed to have trouble coming up with ideas for writing.  I found it was difficult for my kindergartners to come up with the stories.  I would model in a mini lesson with a story or topic, but there still needed to be something else to help the kiddos come up with writing ideas.  It needed to be a picture, a visual piece.
