End of the Year Activities for the Primary Grades

 Can you believe it's already May?!  That means the end of the year is near.  I love this time of year, because it's a time to relax a little more and have fun with your students.  It's super busy and crazy, but making those memories is totally worth it!  In the past, we have done end of the year countdown, made memory books, completed crafts and anchor charts, got ready for the next grade, and taken last day photos for families.  I will show you in a little more detail in this post what I love to do in my classroom with students during the last week of school.

We do an end of the year countdown for the last two weeks.  It's a great behavior incentive to use each day, as well.  We blow up ten balloons, and put a piece of paper inside with a fun activity to do that afternoon.  We had activities like do a directed drawing, have a dance party, popsicles outside, story time outside, extra recess, paper airplane contest, etc.  I thought I had a photo of this, but I couldn't find it.  Just attach the photos to a bulletin board and number them for the countdown.  We actually just did one countdown for the whole grade level.  Each morning, we would all meet in the hallway and pop the balloon together.  We also had a little pep talk about our day.  ;)

We love completing memory books together.  I usually space these pages out over the last week of school.  They complete 2-3 pages per day.  You could do all of these pages or choose certain ones to complete.  I love going around and reading everyone's books.  It gives me great insight into what students loved about our year.  I have also had them write a letter to future students of my class.  Those are even sweeter to read!

We always do a last day of school photo.  I just send these out to parents on our Class Dojo.  I made these cute pennant flags for the photos.  Just print the flag on cardstock and tape a skewer or wooden rod to the back.  I took three types of coordinating ribbon and tied it to the skewer.  I added these pom poms, but they are still super cute without them!  I have these in my end of year pack for kindergarten-second grade, and I have a totally separate resource that contains only the flags for grades pre-k through fifth.

I also like to begin the conversation about the next grade level to ease any worries they may have about next year.  First, we make a can, have, are chart about what they think students are like in the following grade.  I love hearing their responses!

They also make a student booklet to match the anchor chart.  I let them add illustrations to the book, as well.

Finally, we make these fun hats!  I hear a lot from teachers that their students love making these.  They are always so proud to wear these around the school and to lunch.

When I taught kindergarten, we made these to hang up at the reception following our graduation for families.  They were hanging on the windows and doors as they entered the cafeteria.  These would also be great to hang up at an awards' ceremony for families to see.  Students write and draw about their favorite memory of the year.  You can print the caps and gowns on school color construction paper.  There is also a diploma in the pack that you can print for students.

If you love these end of the year activities, I have them in my TPT store for kindergarten, first, and second grades.  I also sell the pennant flags separately in a set for grades pre-k through fifth.  Click below for the end of the year activities.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

  8. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of theliver already present. I started on antiviral medications whichreduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virusbecame resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment fromULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com)) in March, 2020. Theirtreatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test afterthe 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazingtreatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
