1-2-3 Come Make A Father's Day Booklet With Me
As I've stated in a previous article, daddies sometime get jipped out of a homemade gift or card for Father's Day, that their little one made in school, because many children are alreay on vacation, before that special day rolls around.
If you still have a few days or weeks left, you may want a sweet summer writing prompt for your kiddo's to work on.
This booklet makes a wonderful card for Father's Day and a nice independent activity for your Daily 5 or writing/reading center.
It's a nice review of a variety of Common Core State Standards, that students need to incorporate, as they work on their booklet.
Students use adjectives and verbs to describe their dad and then draw a picture of him.
Children can also cut out the happy Father's Day heart or the square and glue it to their paper for a bit more pizzazz.
Make this even more of a keepsake by adding a school picture.

1-2-3 Come Make An Owl With Me!
So Long School; Hello Summer is a writing prompt craftiviity I think your students will enjoy.
Students assemble their owls and then write what they'll miss about school under the owl's wings, or if you want them to have more room, they can cut and glue the "back" template and complete the writing prompt there.
You could also use this as a "graduation" activity and have students write about what they'll miss about pre-school or kindergarten, or whatever grade level they will be leaving.
Choose natural earth tone colors for your students to choose from, or for crazy-pizzazz, give them an assortment of bright colors to add a splash of wow to their work.
Glitter as well as wiggle eyes can also make things pop.
Adding a school photo to the leaf, helps easily identify work and makes the project even more of a keepsake.
I used a flower paper punch for the eyes. There are many available, and students enjoy this fine motor skill.
The owls look wonderful swirling and twirling when they are suspended from the ceiling in the hallway.
