The end of the year is a busy time for teachers. Then comes the last day and we are filled with mixed emotions. I try to ensure that I still have lots planned since there usually is a last minute change in scheduling for us.
This is my go to last day of school activity for my kindergartners since it can easily fill up any amount of time.
I also really love it since if it doesn’t get done… then it is no big deal.
This end of the year kindergarten memory banner is a large printed sheet that I print onto 11×17 paper (or enlarge to those proportions using our copy machine).
How To Make Kindergarten Memory Banner
- Students first trace the circles with crayons. You could easily edit out this step if you need the project to move faster or are short on time.
- Use water colors to paint each circle a different color.
I’ll note that normally we don’t finish painting the entire thing since I made tons of circles. That was part of my plan. For real.
Why I love this Project
This kindergarten memory banner is a great last minute project.
I love saving this for the last day of school since they get out Clorox wipes afterwards and clean up everything! It leaves the classroom really clean and in good shape for starting the summer off without my classroom looking like a bomb went off.
Later in the school day, after their paintings are done drying, I take a picture and email them home on the last day!
If this project doesn’t fit your idea of a last day of school project… how about a cute handprint poem?
