Are you ready for the last week of school?
In this post, I will share my tips for creating your own rule book for the best end-of-year ever!
The Last Week of School Start Traditions
There is no time like the present to start a new classroom tradition or carry on with the one you already enjoy. Some of my favorite end-of-the-year traditions include creating a class photo that shows students’ individuality and holding a read-a-thon.
You can check out more traditions in this post.
Play Some Party Games
A great classroom party game can build community, provide entertainment, and become a wonderful classroom tradition. This is especially true in a time when we are moving away from classroom parties full of food.
Check out these pro tips to make the most of your last week of school classroom party game experience.
Prepare for Next Year
What you do at the end of the school year can make or break the beginning of the next school year. By taking some time to set yourself up for success, you will save yourself a lot of grief.
I share some end-of-the-year to-dos in this post.
Enjoy Your Students the Last Week of School
More than anything, I hope you take the time to really enjoy your students during the last days of school. Whether this means including a few extra read alouds, having more conversations with students, or extra games at recess, you will not regret it.
Keep Building Relationships the Last Week of School
The end of the year can be beyond hectic, but by keeping your classroom community tight and including lots of team, class, and partner-building activities you can ensure an engaging time.
End the School Year Right!
With some thoughtful planning and time spent enjoying relationships, the end of the year can be wonderful all the way through the last day.
