I don't know about you, but I LOVE the end of the year. It means cleaning, organizing, and moving on, while reflecting on the year. The lower elementary schools in my district participate in a school wide ABC countdown, yearly. My school, is an intermediate school for 4th and 5th graders. We try to create our own traditions, but I haven't found something that was easy and exciting enough to stick with. This year we are going to try something new! I came up with this adorable ABC Countdown/ Memory Book and I am SO excited to share it with my students AND you all!
There are 27 pages (one for each letter of the alphabet and a cover sheet). I photocopied the book back/front and stapled it like a twice down the left margin. It printed adorable and it will look even better when we finally make it to the countdown and can start filling it out!!
Each page has fun black and white clip art to color in and a creative writing response to prompt a student memory from the year. I know my students will save these memory books for the future. Who wouldn't? I think they are even better than yearbooks!
The download on TPT comes with two versions of the book. One version has the countdown from 26 days of school --> Summer. This is meant to have your students fill in one page a day and go in order. I also included the same book, without the bottom number countdown. This will work great for the classrooms who would like to do more than one page in a day. It would also work perfectly as center activities or even for sub plans!
