We are talking SCARPBOOKS this weekend at Southern California Kindergarten Conference! Hope we see you at this fun make and take session. Scarpbooks are our favorite kind of talk! We have been doing these books for almost 20 years. Yup, that's how much we love them. Classroom scrapbooks turn into the BEST school-year keepsake. Cessy, Cindy, and I (Yisel) all have kids that have been in each other's classes over the years. So our own kids have made these scrapbooks and we love them both as teachers AND parents. It looks like an overwhelming project, but we will share handy tips for making it all manageable.
We create one scrapbook page each month. Most pages include a photograph, but in some years we've had to cut back because of cost. But as you can see, its not just about the photos. Featuring the student's original art or writing is just as special.
Academic rigor is alive and well in our mandated CCSS classrooms. And that's fine. What makes the kindergarten classroom unique is that it all happens in a well-balanced classroom that thrives in preserving that magic that makes this such a special age. Let's preserve those memories!
Here We Come to Save the Day!
We are three energetic kindergarten teachers who want to share our kinder experience with you!
