Are you nearing the end of the school year? We are almost there!! It is fun to do something different when you get all the testing over with just to re-energize your class and keep it interesting.
I have been collecting some ideas from Pinterest for some great end of the year activities and I thought it would be great if we share our boards so we can collect even more fun ideas!
This has got to be one of the cutest ideas!! The Angry Birds! It was created by April over at Wolfelicous blog. Each day a student pops a balloon and the class gets to do the activity listed inside. Now that will keep students motivated to come back each day. 🙂
My next idea to spotlight is coming from Miss DeCarbo from Sugar and Spice. This is really a twist on the balloon idea and uses QR codes instead for those of you ready to jump into the QR code craze! I am wanting to try these QR code ideas.
This book of advice will make a fun writing activity for students at the end of the year. It comes from Kelly Ehmer. I think it would be so much fun to read what students think is important for the next year’s students to know!
I really like this collaborative board pinned by Rosanne Bito. It’s bright and colorful and everyone can contribute to it. Plus, I like the count down in the middle.
These are just a few of the fun end of the year ideas that I have found. Follow my End of the Year Activities Pinterest board by clicking here.
Then leave the link to your end of the year idea board in your comment below so I can follow yours too! I love seeing what you find- there is so much out there to be discovered!
I think it's good for both students and teachers alike to mix things up at the end of the year. It helps keeps all of our minds on school instead of summer. The ideas above do just that. 🙂
Forever in First

I like your thinking, Tammy. Students and teachers do need a little help sometimes focusing on school at the end of the year instead of just on summer!
You are so welcome, Miss DeCarbo! I love your idea of using the QR codes. I hope to start using codes soon!
Thank you Barbara! You are so right. The end of the year is crazy and fun! Have a great end of the year!
