1-2-3 Come Make A Keepsake Autograph Booklet With Me
It's the middle of May and the school year is definitely winding down. You can literally feel the excitement in the air in anticipation of summer. I was always looking for a few fun activities for my kiddos to do independently, while I did assessing and other year-end paper work. I needed something that was easy-peasy in the prep-work department too.
With that in mind, I designed 3 quick, simple and fun autograph books. No matter what grade I taught, all of my students really enjoyed collecting autographs, and I was freed up to work on my long "to do" list. Woo hoo!
Practicing writing their name is especially meaningful for younger kiddos; the autograph book is a super-fun way to practice, and sure to become a keepsake.
The first auto-graph booklet uses some adorable automobile clip art for a "play-on-words" that I'm so fond of incorporating in my work. After running it off and giving a few directions, allow students time to color their booklet and collect signatures. ( Fun for them and quiet time for you! )
Simply run the cover off on white construction paper and have students color their car, or run the pattern off on a variety of colors of construction paper and have students cut and glue the car of their choice to the front of another sheet of construction paper. (See sample in photograph).
I've included inside pages for your students to color and collect signatures on. There's a page for classmates to sign, one for other friends, another for school staff, plus two teacher pages.
Since PK children tend to write their names really big, I've included a full-page version, as well as a smaller, 2-on-a-page option. The large car-themed auto-graph booklet is a FREEBIE. Click on the link to view or download it.
This booklet also has inside pages for special people to sign. They are black and white, so that when children are done collecting signatures they can color the cute clip art. (More time for you to finish assessing or whatever! Can I hear another woo hoo!?)
Simply cut some blank pages for the inside and staple together. Bright-colored or neon copy paper would be perfect for these, adding some extra pizzazz.
Click on the link to pop on over to my TpT Store for the end of the year keepsake autograph booklet packet. It's just $2 (I figure it's a small price to pay for some "sanity saver" time. What say you?)
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. My feet have once again hit the floor running.
Our son is getting married on the beach this weekend, so I have a myriad of super-fun, last-minute things to do, all while watching a baby and toddler, as Nana's little day camp is also open today. Wishing you a love-filled week.
