Guided Reading Gifts

We use Fountas and Pinnell to assess our students' reading levels four times per school year (September, December, March, and June). After reviewing the results, we change up our reading groups. As I say goodbye to readers who have "outgrown" my reading intervention group (yay!) and get ready to say hello to some new-to-me students, I like to throw a reading "party" and leave a thoughtful parting gift!

To pick up this black & white bookmark template, please hop over to my blogpost.
See you there!

End of the Year Thank You Activities

Making some thank you cards to show your appreciation for staff and others that have helped you through the year, is an educationally relevant activity, plus a great way to teach this valuable life skill.  I find that children are anxious to make something for these individuals, as they have truly come to care for them.

The "Thank you 'berry' much for lending a helping hand!" strawberry card, is a quick, easy and fun end-of-the-year appreciation "craftivity" to do with your kiddos.   It's especially "sweet" for secretaries and classroom volunteers.  

Trace one of your student's hands to make the leaves, flip the card up, add a group "Thank you!" photo and have all of your kiddos sign the back.  

Another option in my Thank You! Appreciation packet is a cute "Teachers take a hand, open a mind, and touch a heart" poster, which makes a wonderful keepsake card. 

Simply mount it on construction paper and have all of the children sign it, or send the note home to parents (included in the packet) and enlist their help. 

They trace their child's hand and jot down a message on it.  You glue the hands around the poster, or inside, as additional pages to a stapled card.

End Of The Year Craftivity

Are you looking for something quick, easy and fun for your kiddos to make as an end-of-the-year keepsake? 

How about a "Sweet Summer Dreamin'" pillowcase that's autographed by everyone? 
This is one of my all-time favorite end-of-the-year activities that I've done for 10 years with my Y5s.
The rubber stamps represent all of the different themes and units we studied throughout the year.

I explain all of the simple details on my blog.  My kiddos absolutely LOVE this. A special thrill for me was having five fifth graders come to help us.  They had all been in my Y5 class and actually remembered doing this activity!

Preventing the Summer Slide Parent Handout

As teachers, we know how much students can lose over the summer months.  Here's a handout that you can send home before students leave for vacation with ideas for how to keep those kiddos reading!  Just  hop on over to the Preventing the Summer Slide blog post to download this freebie.







Beginning or End of the Year Writing Prompts

Do you have "Make awards" on your "To Do" list? If so, instead of you doing all of the work, have students pick a partner and make one for them.  The ideas in this packet, also double as super-fun writing prompts that make sweet end of the year bulletin boards too.

I've included a "Text It!" iPhone writing prompt worksheet, where students  "text" their partner a message. This can be anything from what they plan to do for the summer, to a complimentary "bucket-filling" text, which can be used as an award. 

You could also have children write a message to one of your new students that you'll have in the fall.  They can tell them about a few things they really enjoyed about this grade.  

If your students are graduating from preschool or kindergarten, you can have children "text" a message of congratulations.

There's also a "Tweet It!" bookmark writing prompt that can be used in the same fashion.  I've included samples for both that you can share with your kiddos to help explain things.

The "Wow!" speech bubble note (with 3-on-a-page for quick printing) is even more versatile, as you can also use it as a praise certificate, note from the teacher or mini award.

Finally, there's an alphabetical list of 236 positive adjectives students can use to describe the classmate they are writing these notes for. It's a great way to build vocabulary, while improving self-esteem by complimenting their friend.

All of these could also be used for the beginning of the year, when you're looking for back-to-school "icebreaker" or "bucket-filling" activities.
