    End of year open house

    Hi Jenny,
    We too have an end of year open house. I collect extra staple pullers, and the parents stroll the room and take down their child's work from the walls! All their writing, notebooks and logs go home that night as well.
    I do a tribute to each child, by collecting compliments and special little stories from the class on each child and share bits and pieces with the group. In addition, the families each bring in a dessert to share.
    As for packets, I put together a small handout which consists of: suggested summer reading & a book list to record their titles, ideas for authentic mathematics problem solving, possibilities for writing & a mini notebook, and the high frequency words we've been working on in spelling.
    We usually do a memories book, or a class tee shirt (parents pay for these and we make them in class, to be handed out that evening).
    These activities are great ways to wrap up the year! Best of luck. ;-D
