End of the Year Paper Bag Scrapbook

I have been busy working on a pack to wrap up the school year. At the beginning of the year, we had a kick of off party for The Greatest School Year Ever! It truly has been the greatest school year ever! I wanted to wrap up this great school year in a fun way and give my students a way to reflect on their year and have a sweet keepsake to take with them. When I saw the adorable end of the year Melonheadz clip art, I decided to create a paper bag scrapbook memory book pack and some other goodies to print for them!
I love using paper lunch bags to make scrapbooks! The openings make the best pockets to put extra pages or memorabilia inside. The small size is so cute and a bit easier to print than letter size. 
There are different choices for cover pages and inside pages. Depending on your students' abilities, some pages have spaces for them to fill in, and others are a page of lines, so students can respond using their own words. 
I've included digital paper strips to use as spines in this pack. I found that adding the spines after the scrapbook pages are glued in works best. I just used a glue stick to glue the spines and pages. I later thought of laminating the spines before adhering them so they stay nice and sturdy. Maybe I will try that next year! 
I've also included some fun cards, bookmarks, treat bag toppers, and a poster in this pack. There are a few shown below. 
I have a little freebie for you from this file. Click on the picture below to download your own copy of this poster. 
If you think of anything else you are in need of with this file, please let me know! I would love to add anything you might be needing. 

I am in denial that the end is coming in 6 days for me. I have loved teaching this class this year!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


  1. I had a great class this year and was sad to see them go on our last day 5/21. My favorite thing this year was seeing kids shine outside of the classroom in the arts or athletically. I sang in the Talent Show last week with 8 of my 5th graders and had soooo much fun! I was so proud of all of them!

  2. My last day is Friday, June 5. My favorite thing this year was seeing some of my students reach their full potential. They didn't think they could do it!

  3. Our last day with students is June 3rd but what I really wanted to say was how much I love your new design! So pretty! :)


  4. My last day of class with the kids is June 16th. My favorite memory this year was with my English language learner (she has a pretty limited vocab and usually needs extra support) smile really big and say she could do this assignment on her own and she liked it! :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  5. Our last day is May 27th! My favorite part of this school year was seeing so many of my firsties grow so much with their reading! It always amazes me! :)


  6. Our last day of school was May 22nd. My favorite thing about this year was my class. I had an AMAZING group of kiddos this year, and I'm going to miss them.

  7. Thank you, Ladies! I'm going to have to work hard to get through this last week in one piece! Mrs. Davies, I'm sending the pack to you!

  8. Love this pack... Would love to win!! We have 3 days left in Ohio. This year I've had a challenging class (double the boys than girls), but have loved watching many of my kids make great gains.
