It's almost here! The last 26 days of the school year! The kids are looking forward to Summer Break *almost* as much as their teachers and everyone is getting a little antsy. What you need is an alphabet countdown to summer!
An alphabet countdown is a celebration of all the work your kiddos have done during the school year. Each day focuses on a different letter, beginning with Z and ending with A. You can use each day to review something you have learned throughout the year that matches the letter of the day or you can throw in a few activities for a one day theme you never had time for. Celebrate zebras on Z day, space on S day, pirates on P day, farms on F day, and more!
This resource provides suggestions for snacks and activities for each letter of the alphabet. You get a parent letter explaining alphabet countdown, full page lists of what to eat or do for each day, and half sheets to send home with upcoming events in the countdown. Best of all, this product is editable so you can truly customize it to what you want to celebrate with your class. All you have to do is buy this product, install a couple amazing fonts from Kimberly Geswein, and edit your weekly half sheets in PowerPoint so your class knows what will happen each week. If you don't want to edit, there is even a sample of what my class is doing for the 2017 Alphabet Countdown so you can just print and go!
I love doing an alphabet countdown with my kiddos and I bet you will too!
