I hope you are patting yourself on the back that you have made it to the end of the year {well, almost!}

There are SO many reasons why I love the End of the Year {hello, summertime!} but most of all, it's because the students are capable of doing so much more now!

There are two options of writing paper so you can pick what works best for your kiddos.

Please note: this requires a lot of tiny cutting so it may be tricky for young little learners!

The cactus writing prompts are fun for students to reflect on the past year. And of course, they make a darling display, too!

This Year Was Berry Fun!

You may have guessed by now that I love a good pun…and a pun that can be turned into a writing craft!

This berry craft may be the easiest end-of-the-year writing project to prep and complete for students because it requires very little fine-motor cutting. There are several options of writing prompts that can be added to this mini-book, too.

We Packed a Lot into This Year!

If you are looking for an end-of-the-year writing craft that has TONS of options, look no further than this darling suitcase craft!

To make, students select different “stickers” they want to add to their suitcase representing their favorite activities throughout the year. Then, they share what their favorites have been.

As far as writing options, there are so many choices! You can simply print one page for students to write about the entire year.

Or, you can print multiple pages for students to write even more about the year. For this version, I created a little book and stapled together the finished product.

S'More Craft

I am obsessed with s'mores in real life so I figured I could squeeze them into the classroom for some sweet writing, too 🙂
