This adorable writing-prompt, whale "craftivity" serves double duty, as you can use it for back to school or the end of the year.
I've included a template for the end of the year: "I hope you have a 'berry' special summer, just like you" as well as one for the beginning of the school year: "I'm wishing you a 'berry' special school year." For a sweet treat, attach your note to a berry-flavored juice box, or some Wild Berry Skittles.
This is a quick, easy and fun way to have your students practice their writing skils and cover quite a few Common Core Standards. Includes a page for the 1st day of school, + a writing prompt for each month, and culminates with a page for the entire year. Great for Daily 5 and to share with parents at conferences, to show improvement. Completed projects make an awesome keepsake.
Choose a template (PK-highschool) to make a sweet back-to-school bookmark for your students. "You're going to have a grand time in (grade)."
