The end of the school year can be such a whirl! It always seems like from spring break on, I am running the 400m sprint and it’s definitely not a relay. Ha!
One thing we loved to do was make the last 24-26 days fun and exciting! We created an ABC Countdown that helped things stay new, exciting, with a little bit of an academic focus around each “theme”. (I say 24-26 because some years we combined a few letters to make things work with our schedule. 😉 )
Each day we focused on something different, but we didn’t make that the focus for the WHOLE day. Sure, there were a few days that were silly, but the academic ones were not an all day thing by any means. This was also a great incentive for the students to work toward at the end of the day and look forward to! As we all know, behavior can be tricky during the last few weeks.

We also took some time either at the end of each day or first thing the next morning to write about that day’s activity. Snag this FREE ABC Countdown Writing Journal HERE.
