End of Year Ideas and Blog Hop - "School's (Almost) Out!"

As much as I love the countdown to summer, it can sometimes be a stressful time of the year as students prepare for tests, teachers have to finish up final report cards and then begin the often gargantuan task of cleaning their classrooms and prepping for next year! 

Here's a fun activity I like to do at the end of the year with my students - it's called The Final Countdown. (You can grab a free copy by clicking the image below).  I ask the students to list 5 of something, then 4, then 3...   I like to do this activity and have students share their answers with each other or the entire class. It's fun to hear what everyone has to say about their year. 

If it's a nice day I like to take this activity outside - it's a nice change from the classroom and students can relax a little bit.  I also often use this time for students to provide me with some feedback - what worked for them and what didn't and why.

  I have also included a blank version of The Final Countdown that can be used as test prep - just fill in the blanks with questions that relate to your topic.
