This makes a great end of year writing activity - fun, yet educational. Students will write an end of year letter to next year's students, offering advice about their teacher and explaining what they should learn in the upcoming year. This activity is scaffolded so that all of your students - even your struggling writers - can be successful.

This activity also helps students reflect on what they have learned over the past year and can help teachers reflect on their teaching. It also gives students an opportunity to practice their writing with a real life purpose.

This resource contains both a print and digital version. The digital version is designed to be used with Google Classroom and Google Slides.
