Memory Books plus a Foldable Tutorial :)

12 days is all the separates me from S.U.M.M.E.R!  Don't get me wrong... I love my job, love my kiddos that I've had this year but I desperately need the summer to get here.  I am completely jealous of people that I blog-stalk follow who only have a few days left.  But we have a lot to get into the next 12 days (and 3 of those are 1/2 days!).  One of the things that I want to finish is this End of Year Memory book that I put in my TPT and TN stores last night. 
It has numerous fill-in pages and grade-specific covers.  I can't wait to see what my kids put!  I definitely think this is something that parents will love to read as well.  Grab it HERE or HERE!
We have worked SUPER hard on our trioramas this week for Social Studies.  My students picked one event from 4 (out of 7) of our SS units.  Here's how you put it together....
You can use a regular sheet of computer paper.  Cut off the end to create a square.
Fold it in half.
 Fold it in half again.
When you open it back up,  you have 4 sections.
Cut between two of the sections.  I told my kids this made "legs."
This is when my students added the information for their project!  It's MUCH easier when it's not glued yet. :)
Tuck one of the "legs" underneath the other and glue. (Yep, that's a Christmas book on my desk.... I was going through my classroom library!)
This is how one section will look when it is put together.
You can staple the pieces together and create the triorama.
This is one of the FANTASTIC projects that one of my kids did!
My kids really loved this project and I'm sure that you super creative people can think of multiple uses for this foldable. :)
Off to grade papers... grades are due tomorrow!
Smiles and Snapshots!
