End of the Year Freebies

I have 2 more days of post-planning and my summer will officially start.

Well, for a little bit.

Then I have 3 weeks of summer school to teach.

Then I'm done. For real.


I know that several of you out there are still hard at work, so I thought I'd share one of my end of the year activities.

We used bare books from Lakeshore to make third grade memory books. One of our pages included a list of our "favorite things" from this year. I thought I'd share it with you!

I included pages for 1st-5th grade. It's a simple activity you can have the kids do on their own or with their friends. My kiddos loved it, but what they loved more was sharing them in a giant Writer's Workshop circle by the ELMO.

Hope the end is in sight for you as well! Hang in there!!
