That’s a great question. One thing that was helpful for me was keeping the schedule the same, but switching up the welcome/warm-up and transition activities

Great question and one that seems hopeless those last weeks!!! Something you could do is give them group activities such as travel agents— have their groups do a presentation at the very end of the year and come up with a travel brochure and power point on where they think people should travel over the summer break. They have a great time with it, you are incorporating so many different skills into this, including science and social studies, and the kids also remember what interesting places they learned about and why they should travel there! It takes about 3 weeks for them to really get all the places together and make the PowerPoint and brochure! Then presenting it they can dress like their places they found most interesting!
