This packet is a great alternative to the usual end-of-the-year memory book. Students glue the templates to a file folder and cut on the lines to create a flip booklet. An autograph page is included that can be glued to the back.
1-2-3 Come Have A Blast With Me!
Now that Mother's Day is over, it seems that attention has turned to looking for end-of the-year activities, as school begins to wind down for many. With that in mind, I designed the "I Had A Blast In School" packet.
I've included writing prompt-templates for preschool through 8th grade, plus a blank one to fill in with whatever.
Students can simply fill in the page, or they can wrap a toilet paper tube with scrapbook or wrapping paper to make a "firecracker" and add some 3D pizzazz. I mounted everything on a sheet of scrapbook paper to make it more colorful as well.
I've included a fireworks pattern that students can sprinkle glitter on and then glue to the top of their firecracker, or tuck in a wad of tinsel for a sparkling effect. Add a school photo for that finishing touch.
Completed projects make an awesome end-of-the-year bulletin board and are a nice alternative to a school memory book.
After your students share their creation with their classmates, give them a choice of the four bookmarks. "I hope you have an absolute blast this summer." Teachers write a student's name at the top and then sign the bottom.
You could also ask students if you can keep their "blast" craftivity to give to your next year's kiddos.
Have them fill in the "I hope you have a blast too." note and glue it to the back of their work.
What a nice surprise for your new class to find in/on their desks in the fall.
If they want to take their work home, but would still like to make something for next year's class, have them color and complete the writing prompt bookmark: "You're going to have a blast in _________ because..."
As with the above prompt, I've included templates for preschool through 8th grade, with a blank one (pictured) to fill in with whatever. Encourage students to write more on the back.
