Ideas for using this book in classroom or library and/or brief notes on curriculum connections/content learning standards/Common Core, etc.:
- Make a mini book of your own memories: something warm, something from a long time ago, something that makes you cry, that makes you laugh, something that’s precious as gold. (Let students know ahead of time they can bring in things from home they would want to include in their memory book.)
- Older students: write an essay about their most precious memories (using same categories) or have them interview their grandparents/parents and write essay about their memories.
Special features included (if applicable) — index; timeline; author’s notes; further reading; etc.
