Happy End of the School Year!
It’s so hard to believe that we are already to the end of the school year! I know some teachers have been out for a couple of weeks, while some of us work until the end of June! I’m here in New York, and we finish up on June 23rd!
If you’re still in school, you may need a few things to get through the last days. Honestly, I find as many engaging (and educational) activities and projects as I can for these last days!
Below are a couple of things I thought you may like to make the end of the school year even more fun!
I have a couple of resources that I use on National Donut Day! First of all, Danni the Donut Math Craftivity can be used over the course of a couple days, and meets multiple ELA and math standards. The problems included are mainly multi-step word problems. This activity is easy to differentiate, as there are 4 different versions included for students in grades 2-5.
Another resource I use is this Comprehension by Color activity for National Donut Day!
I’ve been working with my kids on close reading, so the color by comprehension on the right side bar of each page helps them with finding specific evidence in the text to help them comprehend.
Students are asked to:
Circle in red = Unknown words
Underline in green = Facts about the history of the donut.
Underline in blue = What donuts are called in other countries.
Circle in purple = Important dates.
Included are the following:
*An article about Donuts/doughnuts, with information about donuts from around the world.
*Design a Donut activity!
FUN End of the Year Awards!
At the end of the year, I like to have a little fun with my kiddos and give out funny awards! These awards are meant to be super FUN for the end of the year! There are 55 awards for students based on many different student interests and quirks! These are also fillable, which means you can add kids names quickly and easily!
