At the conclusion of our fraction unit we share PICTURE PIE by Ed Emberly with our kiddos and invite them to created their own picture pie art. My cute friend hung her student's work in the hallway. It turned out SO cute and is such a fun way to end the unit. I just noticed the book is only 1.99 on Barnes and Noble... if you don't have it ;)
Teachers look forward to summer break as much as the kids, however,
don't you always stress about the decline they will make if they don't continue reading and studying?
A couple years ago I sent this little booklet home with my "soon to be 3rd graders" and encouraged them to complete them throughout the summer and then bring it back to me so that I could hug them again ;). They did and their parents expressed appreciation for a quick task for them to do during a down time.
I sent them home (the 1st year) with a beach ball to blow up and play with.
The next year they didn't have enough beach balls so I tried sunglasses.
Both were cute and appreciated!!
I soon realized that I should have ordered them online at Dollar Tree and we wouldn't have had the trouble... but the sunglasses were a hit. Click the pictures for the links to the DollarTree.com
This is a new option (have a ball this summer)...
I'm going to check it out tonight.
I'd love to hear your ideas for end of year gifts.
