I have done this project every year with my class and the kids love it! The last week of school, we work on completing our Beach Ball Book which includes writing prompts to pick and choose from such as: One thing I learned was __; What I liked most was __; My favorite center was __; My favorite subject was __; One thing I learned was__; My favorite special was __; My favorite assembly was __; I liked my teacher because __; My favorite time of the day was __; I will miss __, etc. The kids color/paint the cover of the book titled, "We Had a Ball in ____'s Class!" Then on the last day of school, I give each student a mini-beach ball (order from Oriental Trading) for them to pass around and sign their name. A keepsake favorite!!
