Spark Student Motivation: Class Memory Jar

Such a wonderful quote from Dr. Seuss! And, we need to keep our class memories cherished!
I've had this on my "to do list" since summer and I'm not sure what took me so long to make it because it only takes a few seconds. Anyway, I figured it's never too late to start a memory jar, so I decided to add it to our classroom this week.
 I introduced this small jar to hold all of our memories and my students loved it! Ideally, when a special event occurs in your classroom someone should document it and put it in the jar, but reminiscing about all that's happened this year was so fun!
Here are some of the memories we'd like to treasure:

I love that they've remembered such an assortment to events from our classroom this year. Academic, accomplishments, community service, friendships, field trip, etc. It makes you realize how many incredible things that happen in our classroom.

We create memories all the time with our students, so making a Memory Jar is a wonderful keepsake for your classroom to show how important these memories are to you and them.
If you don't have one, make one today and start Monday-it will be a great addition to your classroom!
