A New Day of Learning: Memories Bucket

Memories Bucket

I know that your classroom if filled with fun and memorable lessons, activities, discussions and celebrations! One of the best ways I have found to remember all of the amazing things happening in our classroom is to have a memories bucket. 

I usually introduce it at the beginning of the year and have students add to it whenever they really like something that we do.  On one of the last days of school, we open up the bucket and reminisce about all of the great things that we have done since the beginning of the year.

If you don't have a memories bucket yet, now is a great time to start one! There is still half of the school year left and memories from the beginning of the year are still fresh in their minds.  Trust me when I tell you that you won't regret taking a few minutes to get yours set up! The laughter and the memories of what made the school year special is well worth it! You can use the free labels and slips below to get your memory bucket set up! All you need to provide is the container and memories!
