Can your students act out these common classroom and school nouns?
*Classroom Routine Skits

*”Me in a Bag” Activity
You supply the paper bag, your students will provide the rest…and feel super special when sharing their items with the class
Students will love to look back at how much they have
grown this year. Open on the last days of school and
enjoy the memories! Students will need something to serve as capsule-a paper bag or manila envelope would do the trick
