I posted about story souvenirs on
Facebook and there was interest,
so I thought I'd share what
they are, in case you haven't heard
of them, and how I give them!
Story souvenirs are little items
that relate to a story that students
get to keep in a souvenir box until the
end of the year. If you choose to start
this, students WILL ask you if they can
please take it home...each and every time...
each and every student...no matter how
many times you say no...
until the yucky teeth...those go home!
Here's the yucky teeth
Place story souvenirs in a gift bag.
I use craft bags.
Read a fiction and nonfiction book
of your choice to introduce a new
theme you are studying.
Have students guess what story
souvenir is in the bag. I like to draw it
out a little...adds to the suspense!
I have students keep them at school
until the end of the year in their
“story souvenir box” (pencil box).
They love going back, looking through
them and remembering the stories!
Students can fill out a sheet to take
home and share with their families.

I've given story souvenirs for quite a
few years. I recently started a Pinterest
board that you can see here. It shows
some of my fiction and nonfiction pairs
with a story souvenir. I plan to add
the rest of them to the board this year,
after I've taken the pictures!
I created a sheet for students to
complete about their souvenir.

*I don't buy all of them myself.
I ask for parents to sign up
to donate some of them.
Thanks for stopping by!
