Christmas & End of Year Project: Use this postcard Project for any grade and subject at either or both times of year. This fun assignment is great for any grade level and any subject area. Follow the detailed teacher instructions (with extension ideas) to have students create a postcard about something they learned this semester or year in your class. Then, mail it to them during Christmas/winter break and a week before school starts next year! It's a fun way to end and then start the semesters...knowing that they'll retain at least one thing that you taught them! Great for any grade or subject!
-2 Page detailed teacher instructions (including explanation of materials, preparation, instructions/lesson, and extension ideas)
-Photos of 2 example completed postcards
-Full-page display postcard for teacher-created example
-Blank postcards, front and back (2 per page)
-Christmas themed blank postcards, front and back (2 per page)

**Note: My district pays for the postage like they would any other letters mailed home. Be sure to ask the appropriate administrator about this before beginning.
Extension Ideas: You may choose to post these on a class bulletin board until the school year is actually over. Depending on your grade level and subject, you could have students also sort them into categories (grammar, writing, reading, math, science etc.) You could even tell students when introducing the assignment that you will be holding a class vote on the best or most attractive postcard.
