End of the School Year Activities

Written By: Erika Silano
X End of School year

End of School year

Every teacher knows they spend a lot of time with the students in their class each school year. To be more exact, the average teacher spends between 900 and 1,000 hours with their class between September and June, according to The Center for Public Education. Wow, that’s a lot of quality time! Teachers often joke that they spend more time with the students in their class than their own families, and honestly, that may be true for some. The great news is that each June, teachers and students get to celebrate all of the learning, hard work, and progress that they have made with end of the year celebrations and activities.

After a long school year, creating and planning activities for an end of the year celebration might be the last thing on your mind. There are always end-of-year assessments, data entry, deadlines, assemblies, and the usual chaos that stands at the forefront, but you still want to do some special activities with your class.  Save time by providing end-of-year activities for your students that are ready to decorate! Here are some exciting ideas that double as great keepsakes:
