A great way to end the year and still incorporate writing standards is to have students write a friendly letter to your future students. The 3-slide PowerPoint includes directions, a rubric (for content, organization, support, style and writing conventions) and lastly a list of topics that students can write about in their letters.
This is a great way to wrap up the year while still being productive and allowing students the opportunity to reflect. This could also be used as cooperative assignment.
I used my students' letters the following year on the opening day of school.
