Never make a MEMORY BOOK again!

Oh my word?  Have you ever spent hours at the end of the school year sorting through student work to put into memory books.  Have you ever lost your mind trying to figure out who stole the binding machine to put together books while you so desperately need to begin yours.  Were you that teacher who took the binding machine?  Oh geez, this is stressing me out just hearing about this!


If you hate putting memory books together, then I've got the solution for you! All you'll need are file folders with the prongs and a two hole punch.
See the entire tutorial over at Easy Teaching Tools!

  3. Do you rearrange the book at the end of the year so that the beginning of the years papers are at the front?

  5. I want to try this with my 5th graders. I don't have enough room to staple 26, but do,you think tape or possibly hot glue would Work? Any other suggestions?

    1. I think staples work the best because those folders will get heavy toward the end of the year!
