End of the School Year Pages

(condensed from a handout by Sheri B. CMC)

Take a page (or piece of acid free paper) to school the last week to get signatures of teachers and friends.

Do the pages while the memories are fresh or make notes to use when you do the pages later.

Take a photo of the last day of school to compare to the first day of school photo.

Have the child write about or tell you about their favorite events from the year and the most interesting thing they learned.

Journal about their favorite subject, best friend, favorite field trips, funniest event, something they didn't like, etc.

Do something special each year to celebrate the start of summer--such as getting an ice cream cone after dinner.
