END OF THE YEAR GIFTS


End of the Year Gifts
I give these two gifts every year to my students. On the left is a white board with a marker. I go to Home Depot and buy the bathroom wall boards (they will cut them for you to any size you want) and use colorful duct tape to tape the sides, add ribbon and marker. The card has this poem.
On the right is a letter placemat with this poem: "I like to see the letters I know all lined up in a little row. I'll read them on my placemat here so I will be ready for next year." You can substitute sight words instead of letters.

ART


We painted paper plates and drew on facial features, fringed some construction paper the color of their hair, and cut and glued on a grad cap. These will decorate the wall in the Community Hall during our graduation program.

GRADUATION PROGRAM


Entered singing "I Am Here to Graduate"

Children sang and did hand motions to "If I Were a Butterfly"

Teachers read a "Dear Parents" letter.

Children sang "I'm a Little Graduate"

Then we showed a slide show filled with pictures of the children all through the year. The music for the slide show was Billy Dean's "Let Them Be Little" and Sandi Patti's "Love in Any Language".
The program concluded with the children doing sign language to the end of the song.

Not a dry eye in the place.
