Seven Steps to a Happy Last Day of School - Part 4 Whiteboards

The focus this time of year is getting it all done: packing up, report cards, and all those end-of-the-year necessities.

Seven Steps to a Happy Last Day of School-Part 4: Keep out a few whiteboards, markers, and erasers.

My goal on the last day has always been to try to relax and help the kids enjoy that last day. Today I'll share the 4th of my 7 Steps.

Seven Steps to a Happy Last Day of School-Part 4: Keep out a few whiteboards, markers, and erasers.

Don't kids love using whiteboards?  Mine sure do! I always leave some out on the last day. 

Here are a few "educational" things they can do with the whiteboards:
1. Hangman (They can use spelling words or content words from the year!)

2. Dictate sentences for each other using something you've studied or a book you've read!

3. Tic-tac-toe (it involves strategy!)

4. Make up math problems for partners to solve.

5. Keep out a set of task cards for the children to answer on the whiteboards. Here's a free set that's perfect for end of the year review: Geography Review Task Cards.


Here's a blog post I wrote last year with a few whiteboard ideas: 3 Ways to Use Individual Whiteboards
