This A through Z Countdown to Summer is a great activity to get you through the last 26 days of school! This activity consists of 26 fun, low maintenance activities that correlates with each letter of the alphabet. Each daily activity requires little to no prep work for the teacher!! Many of these end of school countdowns require a lot of prep work, notes home, reminders, etc. NOT this one! The daily activities are simple activities that provide a fun brain break for the students!
Begin this activity 26 school days before the end of the year. Start with the letter A and do a letter each day until the last day of school. Each day I surprise my students on what the letter activity for the day is going to be. They love to guess what activity they will get to do for each letter! I roll up each activity card and place it in a balloon labeled with that letter. At the end of the day we pop the balloon and see what fun activity we get to do for the last hour of the day. I save the activity for the end of the day because the students are usually checking out by then. Plus you can use it as a behavior management tool. If you have students that are not behaving during the day you can have them miss out on the fun end of the day letter activity.
