Registration is no longer needed! End of the Year Writing Prompts Share: 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? 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: 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. Thanks for visiting today. Feel free to PIN anything you think others may find useful. Do you have an end of the year activity you enjoy doing with your kiddo's?
