End of the Year Activities & Freebies

I might be a little late for many of you but with the end of the school year craziness I am just now getting around to posting about my end of the year activities.  Here are some activities I did with my second graders the last week or so of school.

Find Someone Who
I use this activity throughout the school year as a way to get my kiddos up, moving around, and interacting with classmates.  This version has descriptions that are specific for my class and school so you probably won't be able to use this exact one.  But if you want, you can download it!

Summer Bucket List
Last summer I posted about the Summer Bucket List I use.  I changed a few items on the List to use for this year.  Feel free to grab a copy!

End of the Year Election
Last year I had my students vote for each other for students awards.  We voted and tallied together.  This year I had them vote for each other on the sheet below.  I gave them a copy of our class list so they could keep track of using each classmate only once.  Then I collected their sheets, tallied up the votes, and made their awards on decorated paper.  You can grab a free copy of the Election page if it works for you!

I gave out the student awards on the second to last day of school.  I was inspired by Pinterest to create a red carpet for the students to walk down to accept their award.  They LOVED walking down the red carpet!

My blog anniversary is coming up in just a few short weeks.  I never got around to having a follower giveaway so I'm thinking about doing a "blog-iversary" giveaway!  Nothing too huge, but if any of you fellow bloggers would be willing to help me out with donating items, comment or email me to let me know!  Thanks in advance!



  1. Hi, Cyndi! I like your end-of-year activities. We also do an election/awards ceremony on the last day, very similar to yours, but the red carpet idea is super cute! Looking forward to your "bloggy-versary" giveaway. I'll be hosting a 100th follower giveaway this Fri, so come check it out!

  2. Hey there! Cute activity! If you don't do this next year, I would love to! I love it! Anyways, I can help you out! Let me know what you want me to donate from my tpt store! Hope you are enjoying your summer.
