There are other components, but I just wanted a simple comprehension test to use.
For writing I have the students use a prompt that they had at the beginning of the year.
My Best Day Ever
It's always fun to have students write and then compare it to what they wrote at the beginning of the year. Parents love it too!
We use the Go Math program so I am giving the End Of The Year test as well.
I pretty much know all of my students grades, but it's nice to have that evidence to show how far they have come over the year.
For our final day next Tuesday I am planning our class auction and a Luau! Check out this post from last year to see what we will be doing---> End Of Year Luau
The last day of school is on a Wednesday and it's just a half day. We will be cleaning and packing up the room. This year I will be handing out report cards along with a Summer Review booklet.
My fabulous parent volunteer copied them all off for me and put each of the booklets together. You don't have to put them in a booklet, but it makes it easier to carry around for little hands and less likely it will fall apart. Here is a video of how to do it. If you have ever used A-Z Readers then it should be a breeze.
Do you send anything home over the summer? I know some schools have school wide programs. Our school also has a summer reading program. Just like the local library there are incentives and rewards for reading all summer.
Speaking of reading all summer Scholastic has a great program as well.

So what is your final countdown and how much "teacher stuff" do you have to do before you are officially on vacation?
