1-2-3 Come Make A Father's Day Booklet With Me
As I've stated in a previous article, daddies sometime get jipped out of a homemade gift or card for Father's Day, that their little one made in school, because many children are alreay on vacation, before that special day rolls around.
If you still have a few days or weeks left, you may want a sweet summer writing prompt for your kiddo's to work on.
This booklet makes a wonderful card for Father's Day and a nice independent activity for your Daily 5 or writing/reading center.
It's a nice review of a variety of Common Core State Standards, that students need to incorporate, as they work on their booklet.
Students use adjectives and verbs to describe their dad and then draw a picture of him.
Children can also cut out the happy Father's Day heart or the square and glue it to their paper for a bit more pizzazz.
Make this even more of a keepsake by adding a school picture.

1-2-3-Come Write With Me!
Are you looking for some quick, easy, and fun writing prompts for the end of the year, or perhaps a sweet bulletin board to end with a bang?
If so, I think you'll really enjoy this "Fin-tastic" End of the Year Writing Prompt packet.
Run off the large fish on a variety of colored construction paper. Students choose one and cut it out.
They can glue it to the top of a sheet of writing paper, or add more pizzazz by letting them choose a strip of colorful construction paper to write on.
Before hand, brainstorm with students why they think they will have a fantastic summer vacation.
To help with spelling, make a list of things they are going to have fun doing and list them on the board.
For more "pow" have students add a wiggle eye and include their school photo on the fin.
Sprinkle their "fin-tastic" work on a bulletin board covered with blue paper.
To make it 3D add twirled creape paper "seaweed" in a variety of lengths and shades of green, to the bottom of the board.
Your caption can be: "We're Wishing You a Fin-tastic Summer!"
I think your students will also enjoy making the other fish and writing about why they had a "fin-tastic" school year.
This prompt can also be brainstormed. It's quite gratifying hearing all of the reasons why students enjoyed the year.
This "craftivity" can be hung back-to-back from the ceiling.
Finally, have students choose a partner to make a special card for.
They write that child's name in the blank and then write why they think they have been a "fin-tastic" friend, classmate, student etc.
When they are done, they give it to their partner. Add a photo and wiggle eyes to make it even more special.
