End of the Year Student Gift




'Chews' to have a BALL this summer... READ!
After hours of practice and hard work... why not encourage our students to continue reading throughout the summer as our goodbye gift. Fill a small craft bag of bubble gum balls and staple the topper on the bag. A fun poem and directions are printed on the topper for students to receive instructions. Basically... telling them to chew a gumball each day until the flavor is gone, then color in one gumball on the machine (I've included June, July and August). My hope is that our students WILL continue to read over the summer break and not lose skills we have worked so hard on all year. The printables are available in color and black and white. I have also created the directions and 3 gumball machines to fit on 1 page/student to save on paper and work for us ;)
Happy summer. Be sure to save a bag for yourself... think of the novels we've stacked up on our nightstands ;)

Brilliant! Ha! Yes I love buying books that look like juicy reads at Target. Then I get them home and have no motivation to read them. I will have to try this!
