End of the Year Memory Books
Are you looking for a fun and creative way to wrap up the school year? An end of the year memory book is the perfect way to reflect on their learning and create meaningful end of the year memories with their classmates!
An end of the year memory book is simple to put together and is full of engaging activities to help your students reflect on their year and document all the fun they had during the school year. A memory book can include writing prompts, fun activities to complete with classmates, surveys, goal planning, and more! I like to use an end of the year memory book for independent seat work, early finishers, morning work, end of the year keepsakes, or just as a culminating last week of school activity.

How to Make an End of the Year Memory Book:
Putting a memory book together for your students is so simple! All you have to do to assemble your memory books is compile all the finished memory book pages and activities. You can also add any other certificates or pictures you’d like your students to have from the school year, and add them into the memory book as well. You can use a special binding machine, rings, or staples to put it all together into a book. And ta-da! It’s that easy! Your students have an awesome end of the year memory book that will hold all of their special memories from the school year. It’s the perfect keepsake!
Here’s a little twist to the traditional end of the year memory book…have your students create a digital version instead! I love the versatility and use for digital learning or printable memory books. So pick the version that works best for you and your students!
A Digital end of the year memory book can be used with:
- Google Slides
- Google Classroom
Memory books are such a fun end of the year culminating activity! I love that students are able to collaborate with each other by signing memory books, adding caring messages to their classmate’s autograph pages, and more. These activities are the perfect way to wrap up the year as a classroom family. Simple to create, and even simpler to put together and pass out to your class! I can’t think of a better way to end the year and give students a sense of closure to help them gear up and get excited for the following year to come!
