Wordless Wednesday-Unique End of the Year Countdown Ideas

I have five days left.

FIVE. Like *smack me because 1) The kiddos are going cray cray and 2) I am NOT ready to say goodbye just yet. 

I know we say this with every group, but this year has been special.

Since there is just no way that my little brain can throw together a real post at the moment, I thought I would jump in on Wordless Wednesday with Miss DeCarbo from Sugar and Spice

I try my best to find "unique" activities for our end of the school year balloon countdown. Thanks to IG, I saw this idea over at Owl Ready to Teach and knew it would be perfect. The kiddos turned off all the lights, found a fun spot to read, and used their glow sticks. The best part? They read for 45 minutes before friends started to get off task. I told them it was time to move on, and they groaned. 

Do you have a unique end of school year activity?


  1. How fun! We have Pioneer Day on Friday, where we make candles, succotash, cornbread, and butter.

  2. My favorite is always game day- kids bring in board games and play. It's always so much fun, and it keeps them entertained for hours! :) Enjoy your last few days with your sweet kiddos! Here comes summer!!!! :)

  3. We totally do the glow in the dark reading too! They love it! I still have 19 days yet, so I am not there yet, but I love the last 10 days of school with all the fun activities!

  4. I'm DEFINITELY doing this! My firsties will love it. I have 13.5 days left so I'm still thinking of a few fun things to do on top of our normal movie day, board game day, and sports jersey day. Love getting ideas from teachers on Instagram!

  5. OH MAN. I NEED TO DO THIS ASAP! Great idea girl :)
    We are doing a "Bubble Day" next week with bubble gum graphing and bubble blowing science!

  6. Hi Sarah.
    I'm in east TN too (and a new follower). I'll love finding blogs in Tennessee. Hope you have a wonderful end of the year.
