Looking Back on My Year – End of the Year Activity
Looking Back on My Year is a writing activity where students can reflect on their school year. When the year is almost over, it is a great time to reflect back and then look forward to next year! Students can write or draw their memories inside of the glasses provided. Choose between blank, lined, or primary lined glasses. Students will then color the face and add hair.
