About Me About me: I grew up in the shadow of the Appalachians.
Make some memories, get outside, and start thinking about the long days of summer ahead. Here are some ideas!

Some ideas include having students write a letter to themselves reflecting on the past year and looking into the future. You can collect the letters and mail them just before the new school year starts. Another idea is to have students write thank-you notes to people who have helped them throughout the year — teaching aids, parent volunteers, office staff, even other students.
Another favorite is to have your students each write a note to the new students coming into your class next year giving advice and encouragement on how to succeed in your class. Ask some end-of-the-year and summertime Would You Rather Questions. Here are 20 of them for free! Give each student minutes to teach a mini-lesson about something he or she is passionate about or to lead the class in a game, song, or other group activity.
Create a Class Survival Book: This is similar to the letter-writing activity above, except that each student contributes a page to a book that you keep in your class library.
Over the years, you will have a collection of books advising future students about how to succeed in your class. Create a Class Memory book: While there are many pre-made books you can find on line, you can also have students create one themselves.
How about allowing each student to contribute a page? Make a copy for everyone.

Make a Class Video: Use pictures taken throughout the year to make a video. Older students can add captions and music. Add in live footage of students talking about their favorite parts of the year.
