Five Ways to Make Your Last Week of School Memorable

It's hard to believe that we are already planning for the end of the year.  Four weeks left!  Four. Weeks.  That's only 20 days...but who's counting?

I love to make sure the last few weeks of school are memorable for students, especially the last day.  Here are a few things I love to do...

1.  Have each student create a memory book about the year.  It is a great keepsake for them and their parents love it!

2.  Give each child a special award recognizing their accomplishments.  This year, I plan to go big and roll out the red carpet (aka red butcher paper) during this celebration.

3.  Have each student complete a "top ten things about third grade."  This is great feedback to know which projects were the most memorable and it's a great thing to hang in the hallway for back to school night next fall.

4.  Show each kid how to make a tie-dye t-shirt and get signatures from their classmates.  It's the easiest thing in the world and I see kids wearing them for years afterward.

5.  Write a special note to parents thanking them for their support this year.

Here is a freebie you might like for your end of year celebrations.  I have created a t-shirt themed end of year pack and a super hero themed end of year pack.  If you like these ideas, check it out.  It's only $3.00.  

What great things do you do on your last day of school?
