It is fun for me to see what they remember. Some students picked games all the way back from October!
With every class they really seem to be amazed how many songs/games/books we did throughout the year, and they really just scratched the surface.
It makes for a really great review of the songs and concepts from throughout the year.
Another thing I do with my first graders to review the comparatives (Fast/Slow, Loud/Soft, High/Low) is a little End of the Year Comparatives Quiz.
I put it up on my Teachers Pay Teachers store as a flash freebie. For those who may not know, a flash freebie is free for a certain amount of time. You can take advantage of this free PDF today (5-14-13).
"Two Little Stars" is an altered poem. I might use the Bella part and my pink star manipulative for number 8. Find the poem here.
"Mortimer" is a book that I use for loud/soft. The kids just love Mortimer. This book is great for loud/soft, fast/slow, high/low and vocal exploration, but I bring it out specifically for preparing loud/soft.
You can buy it on Amazon here:
I've also included a blank one in case you have different songs you would like to use in the download from my store.
What kind of activities do you do to wrap up your year?
