What educators are saying

I loved all the writing activities that are part of this packet. One of my favorites is the classmate interview. I also love the fact that students get to share their favorite memories.
My students enjoyed these activities throughout the last few days of school! I also enjoyed that there was nothing to prepare, just print and use.
