Wrapping It Up! The End of the School Year is in Sight!

Today I am linking up with my friends over at
  Hello Sunshine for the monthly linky.


This month, we are all about ending the school year on a positive, and hopefully, low-stress slide.  So without further ado, here are some fun ideas to make your last days a breeze.

I absolutely love using these books!
My Teacher's Secret Life is my most viewed and pinned post.
My kiddos wrote their own stories about MY secret life and they were a hoot!
You can find my original post here.

Then I bound all the stories into a class book.


They are definitely favorites in my class library!

After reading Never Take a Shark to the Dentist, and The Book of BAD Ideas, we make our own version of the book.

You can get copies of the Book of Bad Ideas pages here,
and get copies of the books here:

I have loved making these paper bag memory books from Hope King.


And bubbles and beach balls are always a hit 
(even with the big kids!)


Kid favorites are always these word clouds made with their names.

Some years I put them in frames from the dollar store.

and some years I just laminate them.

I make a final video of my kids for the end-of-the-year, but I can't share because it has all of their pictures and names.  It is like the one I posted below, but it has the kids pictures just before the Wordles and the music is "We Are The World."  I love the way it turned out!


You can find a video tutorial about how to make these word clouds here.

Come back tomorrow and find more ideas to keep the kids busy during your last days or weeks.
