Work of Heart Suitcases
Do you ever wonder what to do with all the student work you've kept all year? In years past, I've spent hours upon hours making memory books in scrapbook style that were combbinded. Yes, they were beyond adorable, but this year something had to give and that was my precious time. So, I made a suitcase portfolio I called "My Work of Heart". Students colored the cover and we glued in on a suitcase made out of stapled tagboard. Then the fun began. I put the piles of yearlong "stuff" around the room and each student went around and found their pieces to put in their suitcase. So easy and simple and the kids loved being a part of it. Plus it was a HUGE timesaver. Please do share what you do for your keepsakes.
