With the end of school upon us, I thought I’d share some ideas for the end of the school year/summer starting.
Last year I had a party where I played a movie I made from pictures of my children throughout the year. I also passed out awards to them for the things I was proud of them for, during the last school year. I also put together a 3 ring binder commemorating the last school year. It includes pictures of my children (school pictures, field trips, etc). It has all the artwork and papers I kept over the last year. This 3 ring binder is just for the night as all of those papers will actually make their way into each child's personal school books
Katrina had a kick off to summer party as well! I love the banner and placemats that she made!
I always fill out my “Who Am I” and Yearly Milestones at this time as well!
These end of the year giveouts that Anjeanette makes are sooo cute! She has her Son give them out to his friends from school!
This class phonebook was Katrina’s idea. It’s a great way to help your kids stay in touch with their school friends over the summer. I made this one with small spiral bound index cards. I still have it and LOVE it as it has friends phone numbers from previous years, too!
If you didn’t do things for Teacher Appreciation Week, it is still a nice gesture to do these things for your teachers as an end of the year “Thank You”!
Anjeanette shows how to make a whole week of amazing quilted Teacher Appreciation Gifts!
Here is a gift to say, “Thanks for being a great teacher, we need S’More teachers like you.
I love this idea for the School Bus Drivers!!
Hope you all are managing this chaotic time! We have 2-3 things going on each day, here! Whew! Good luck!
