I made this little activity for students to reflect on what they learned this year. I wanted to create an end of the year activity that had a little substance and required students to reflect on the highlights of what they learned throughout the year! Also, I wanted to it be fun. On the first page, students fill in what grade they are in and write their name on the line. Then they can cut out both boxes and glue them on a file folder like this.
On the next five pages, students can fill in something they learned in Reading, Math, Writing and about Making Friends and Attitude! There is also space for students to illustrate what they’ve learned. Then have students put the sheets in their “file” and you can staple them if you’d like.

I also like to have students write an Autobiography Poem at the end of the year. It’s a good activity to encourage students to reflect on who they are and it’s fun! It’s also an opportunity to build rapport and sometimes students’ confidence! Here is a template I made for the activity.
Another thing I like to do at the end of the year is get an empty pizza box for each of my students. Then I put all their work that I saved throughout the year in the boxes and “deliver” them the last week of school. The kids love it. Most pizza places will give the boxes out for *free* for teachers. Just call around. 🙂 More End of the Year freebies still to come… If you like these ideas and activities, you can follow me by e-mail to get updates and more *freebies*! (see the bottom of the page)
