Looking for a unique end of year activity for Grades 3-5? Try out an envelope accordion book! This project will keep your students actively engaged during those final days of the school year. The completed book makes a wonderful keepsake.
By popular request, a second grade cover has now been added to this set. :-) Please note that the envelope assembly may be challenging for some second grade students. Second grade teachers may prefer to pre-assemble the accordion.
This resource includes black line masters and step by step photo directions for making the end of year accordion envelope book with your students.
PLEASE NOTE: The accordion book requires 6 small, (3⅝ inch x 6½ inch) envelopes per student. I bought boxes of 80 at the dollar store, which cost $2 for a class of 25.
This kit contains the following parts:
1. Accordion book cover ("Farewell to Grade 2, 3, 4, or 5")
2. "About Me" insert with pocket label (age, picture, describing words, how I grew this year, when I grow up)
3. "My Teacher" insert with pocket label (teacher name, picture, my teacher likes to say, what I will remember most about my teacher)
4. "My Friends" cards with pocket label (name, picture, character traits)
5. "Favorites" insert (subject, book, recess activity, lunch, special class, field trip)
6. "Memories" insert (funny, proud, exciting, happy)
7. "Summer" insert (plans for the summer)
8. Autograph page
