End of the Year Activity *Freebie* Updated for 2015!

It’s almost May!  I updated this activity to be used for the end of the 2013-2014 school year. I changed the font on the front cover and I also added a blackline picture of a school that you can use and have students color if you’d like.  Click on the picture for the link to the *free* item in my Teachers pay Teachers store!

I made this little activity for students to reflect on what they learned this school 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. The first page of the document shows an example of the activity. On the second 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. On the next five pages, students can fill in something they learned in Reading, Math, Writing and about Making Friends and Attitude! There is space where students can draw a picture as well. Then have students put the sheets in their “file” and you can staple them if you’d like. (Target has really cute file folders in the One Spot!)

Enjoy!  If you like this, please rate me, or follow me!
Thank you!!!

Spring Tree Counting Math Center Activity {Freebie!}

I made this template for students working on counting with one to one correspondence for numbers 1-20. This file includes tree templates for numbers 1-20, a blank tree template just in case, and flowers to use as counting manipulatives. You can use these in several different ways. First, I would print them on card stock, laminate and/or put them in a page protector. Then you could set them all out, (or just the numbers you are focusing on!) and have students put the corresponding number of flowers on the tree, or you could give students one tree at a time, maybe during a small group intervention. It would also make a nice math center activity. It can be used as a practice activity or as an assessment tool. I have students use these plastic flower rings (like the kind that come in cupcakes) on the trees, but I added the flowers so you have some on paper to use. You could also use any kind of little fake floral. In the fall, you could use little apples! I like this activity because it is hands-on and engaging and a cute activity for spring! I hope you like it!  Click on the picture for the link to the item in my store.  It is currently FREE, as my spring gift to you.  Enjoy!
