3 End of the Year Activities
Below are 3 end of the year activities for elementary teachers.
1. Read Alouds
Read alouds are a great way to celebrate the end of the year. Your students will enjoy listening to the timely stories, discussing them, and reflecting on the school year. Some examples of quality books for this time of year are Mrs. Spitzer’s Garden, Lizzie and the Last Day of School, and Last Day Blues. Check out this full list of end of the school year books!
2. Student-Made Review Games
Student-made board games successfully engage students in learning, create an opportunity to practice and review previously-taught skills, and offer students time and space to use their creativity and problem solving skills to create something of their own. Learn all about student made board games!
3. Memory Books
Memory books are a great way to keep students engaged and continuing to learn at the end of the school year when their minds are set on summer vacation. Learn about my memory books for elementary students by selecting your grade level below. They are an end of school year activities year packet.
