A folder with my Summer Survival Kit on TPT, which includes "Tackle Your Multiplication Facts" flashcards, a "Catch Some Good Books" reading log, and an "I am Writing S'More This Summer" journal. Dollar Tree had packs of three colorful folders in bright pink, green, and purple. Perfect!
I found these LED booklights, batteries included! On the back, I taped this poem, which you can find for free HERE. I'm hoping this will really encourage some summer reading. I'm also including a brand new free book for everyone in their kit that I purchased for $1 from Scholastic.
Last, Dollar Tree had these super bright and sparkly beach pails. I put everything inside, minus the free books (they are in my classroom), and added a label to the front of the pail. Here is what the finished product looks like:
I am planning on placing one on each desk the morning of the last day of school so they are there when the students walk in. All the different colors will look so pretty spread across the room! What are you making for your students' end of year gifts?
