Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 7 pages | Grades: 2 - 6

Reflect on the amazing school year with End-of-Year Reflections Task Cards.

Looking for End-of-Year Activities?

As you wrap up the school year, these task cards will help your students reflect on the many events they experienced throughout the year. 

The 24 cards include thoughtful questions that students will respond to in writing or in a small group discussion. Each question includes space for students to explain their reasoning, making it easy to see what they learned and think about how much progress they made.

Some of the prompts included are:

  • What are you most proud of this year? Why?
  • What was the most challenging thing you did this year? How did you overcome it?
  • How could you have made this year better?
  • What would you like next year’s teacher to know about you?

To use, post the cards in a station or around the classroom. Have students move around the room, reading and responding to each card on the recording sheet. When finished, hold a classroom discussion and let your students celebrate their successes!

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by 

  • Partner struggling readers with a partner to provide reading assistance.
  • Complete the activities as a whole class.
  • Provide sentence starters to encourage student responses.

🛴 Scoot Activity 

Place the cards around the room in numerical order and give each student a recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answer in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point.
