This list has some great ideas you might not have tried. I love to do the Me/We activity (last one on the list).

You have to think about the Me/We activity a little. If you make the pattern correctly, the word "Me" can be flipped so it says "We."

"Numbers in Our Lives" (see attachment for an example)

Once students finish their rough draft, I type them and run back-to-back. Everyone completes one student's sheet each day. Then the student to whom the sheet belongs stands in front of the class and gives the correct answers.

This is a great math activity...and also helps me realize who may have number sense challenges!!

"Me in a Bag" (see attachment)

I usually send the bag home at Open House, which in my school is held two nights before school begins.

We still have 10 days left with students so I am totally on a different page. Are you done your school year already?
One thing I do like to do the last week of school is have my current students write a letter to next year's class giving advice on how to have a successful year in Mrs. ________ class. I leave the letter on the new students' desks on the first day of school. It's a fun activity at both ends of the school year.
