End of the School Year Freebies!

· · · · · · · ·

It’s hard to believe the end of the school year is almost here!  This year has seemed to go by quite fast.  I wasn’t sure May was ever going to get here during the months of January, February, and March, but here we are now in May, and it’s going fast! 

I only have 11 days of school left!  Crazy, huh?  In celebration, I’m sharing several end of the year freebies in this post. 

First up is a Summer Beach Ball Countdown.  Near the end of the school year, I start a summer countdown using beach balls.  I give each student a blank beach ball (paper template!) to decorate.  After they decorate it, I write a number on it.  The number stands for how many days of school are left.  I place the beach balls behind a die-cut sun that says ‘Days Left Until Summer’.  At the end of each school day, we pull down a beach ball.  Whoever decorated the beach ball gets to take it home!  It’s an easy way to add some summer fun and decoration to your classroom. 

 I’ve put together a template you can download by completing the form below.  Enjoy!

The second fun freebie is this Summer Math Challenge involving Missing Addends and Minuends.
