This is a fabulous pack of activities to do with your restless students on those last days of school. Here's what you get:
1- "That's It I'm Done- Goodbye" Poetry Pack- Use the poem with your students. Have them read the poem and discuss what it means. Included is a fill-in-the-blank recording sheet, an illustration page and a bulletin board page.
2- The Best Days- Have your students create this cute mini-book about their school year.
3- Super Summer Survey- Students will interview a classmate about their plans for the summer!
4- Sizzlin' Summer- This is a write the wall activity. Use the vocabulary cards and hang them throughout your classroom. Students will use the recording page to write down the words they find on the wall.
5- HOT Graphic Organizers- These are great summer themed fiction and non-fiction organizers. Included is a summer book list of books that can be used that are "summer" themed.
6- Rock Star Autograph Book- Have students use this book and have their friends autograph it and leave nice messages. There is a color and black and white version of this.
7- Summer Word Sort- Have students sort the words into summer and non-summer groups. This is great to review vocabulary and for ELL students!
8- You Mean the World- Use this poem and letter to send with your students on the last day of school!

Great for end of the year. Just what I was looking for.

Your artwork is cute and the book is thoughtful. I would have liked to be able to print out the book in black and white so my kids could have colored it without the gray shading. I also didn't like the hash marks above the area where the kids could do their writing.
Nataliedanhoff, I'm sorry that you aren't happy with my product. The graphics from the book were not available in digital stamps (which allow for coloring) when I created this product. I'm not sure what you mean about the hash marks above the area where the kids do the writing...that sounds like your PDF didn't open correctly. I did not insert any hash marks in the document. Please make sure your version of Adobe Acrobat is up to date and redownload.
I'm I'm sorry, I didn't see your question until now. Please make sure you have the most up-to-date version of Adobe. I used a penmanship font for the lines where they write the answers. I don't know why some people are showing hash marks instead of the font. Try that first and then let me know.
Also try downloading it onto a different computer and see if it will open correctly that way. Hope this helps!

I checked and I have the latest version of Adobe reader, and there are no new updates. It's already the end of our school year and need to request a refund. How do I do that?
Thank you in advance.
I'm so sorry that you are unable to view the PDF correctly. Have you checked the troubleshooting section of TpT? I assure you that I did not insert any hash marks or any other marks into the document. If you will go back to the product page, I added a pic of one of the book pages. See if yours matches what it should look like. I inserted "Penmanship print" font where they are supposed to fill in the blank on the book. Were you not able to use any of the other activities in the pack? Hopefully the troubleshooting will help you get this corrected so that you will be able to use it next year. If you want to request a refund, you will have to contact the TpT customer service. I hope that you were able to use some of the other activities to warrant some value out of the pack. Either way, I hope your issue can be resolved.

I am not sure about the dashes are on each page (referring mostly to "The Best Days" section) The kids are supposed to respond under those dashes/lines? Some look like they're crooked. Is there any way they could be toned down or removed?
I hope this is not going to you multiple times. My answer is not showing up in the ask a question section:
My suggestion to you is to delete the copy of my activity that you have. Update to the latest version of Adobe and re-download. It sounds like some hash marks are being inserted where there are supposed to be writing lines. Let me know if you are still having trouble.
