Hard to believe school is out for the summer already! My daughter just finished Kindergarten and will be heading to first grade in the fall. Wow!
Yesterday she brought home a folder with all of her writing prompts. They were in order from the first to the last. Although I dearly wanted to go through them all, I didn't - I gave the folder to my husband and asked him to make it into a book. He just brought it home and it is the perfect way to remember the year and see how my daughter has progressed.
I've been keeping assorted papers and projects in a file folder (dating them as I go) and I may just make one more book for those - then I'll have two organized books representing her first year of school. They don't take up much room, but tell a fantastic story - and I can place them right on a bookshelf to enjoy frequently instead of put away in a box somewhere.
