Our graduation was super cute and simple. I ordered hats from Really Good Stuff, and we just decorated the top. I wrote "2013" in glue and the kids picked a glitter color to shake over it. They loved them!
7 habits song and Movin' on to First Grade (neither of these videos are of my kids...just ones I found on youtube :) We also did some Readers' Theater presentations.
For end of the year gifts, I sent home these wordles...a fabulous idea from Amanda! I included everyone's name, the student's favorite thing about school, what they want to do when they grow up, and a few words I think describe them.
I just put them in dollar store frames, but my students loved them! So grateful to have a new, fun idea!
Our last day of school was just a half day and pretty low-key. We read Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss and I had my students all sign a certain page. I started doing this last year, and it's really cool to look back at each kids' signature. I told them I need their autographs for when they're famous presidents and scientists one day :)
It was a great wrap-up to a great year and now I'm ready for summer! Looking forward to relaxing and having some time to work on new things for TpT. I hope everyone else is enjoying their summer so far! What fun things did you do to end your year?
