Creating scrapbooks is one of my favorite activities to complete each year. It is a great ongoing project that is easy for all students to participate in, appropriate for all ages, and completely engaging. Most importantly, the students LOVE it. One of my old students carried around each year’s scrapbook in his backpack at all times. Warms my heart how much those simple laminated pages meant to him. It something that gives them ownership and it’s something that is theirs!
Use these visuals – Scrapbook Visual Craftivity – to guide your scrapbook creation. Each month develop a few photos of each student. Use the visual directions as a guide. Have students cut out the images and graphics and arrange with photos on a piece of paper and glue. This is a great activity to complete throughout the year to work towards the finished project. It’s a great way to reflect on the previous month, encourage communication, advance vocabulary, and practice social skills!
This resource contains visual directions and scrapbook book pictures and images for each month September – June! Also included are a page with special event icons (birthdays, field trips, etc.). I hope your students enjoy this project as much as mine! My students adore their scrapbooks and carry them around for years!
