Take your students on a fun end-of-year glyph adventure! Kids will love designing their own beach bags with this glyph activity.
Summer Activities for the End of the School Year!
Enjoy this beach-themed glyph activity with your scholars at the end of the year!
It’s perfect for primary grades, with questions about what they’re doing over the summer, and fun activities they enjoy.
To use, print student copies of the beach basket and cut-out pieces. Give each student or pair of students a single copy of the glyph checklist as well. Students will use the list as a reference on how to design their beach bag, and what it should contain.
Everyone’s beach bag will turn out differently, and they make an excellent summer bulletin board display!
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your End of Year Activities.
🆘 Support Struggling Students
Assist students struggling with scissor skills by pre-cutting the pieces and placing them in a bag or envelope before the activity begins.
Pair struggling readers with another student to assist in reading the checklist.
✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:
- Strengthen finger and hand muscles
- Build dexterity and fine motor skills
- Improve hand-eye coordination
- Develop focus and attention
