We are going to go back in time for a bit so I can tell you how it all began. When I first started teaching at my last center, I made a little autograph book at the end of the year.
We had a little signing party before nap. Many of the kids didn't understand that they were supposed to write their own name in other people's books. It was a hard concept to understand. But they eventually got the hang of it. Well, the next year I went even bigger. I used full-sized sheets of paper.
When you get bigger, it's hard to recall
Everything you did when you were so small.
But if days get forgotten in years to come
May this yearbook give you a feeling of fun.
Echoes of poems or games or songs,
Memories of rights and notions of wrongs,
The joy of dressing up just to pretend -
We hope this will help with
"I remember when..."
I found that poem online many, many years ago and I changed it just a tad. If anyone knows where it's originally from, please let me know. It's adorable! And I hope and hope and hope that the parents saved these yearbooks for their kids. I spent a lot of time on them.
here - it's hilarious!)
