What NOT to do in first grade!

Can I just say HOORAY!
The kids are OUT for the year and after 2:15 tomorrow, I'm out, too!

Yesterday on Instagram I posted a picture of a class book that we made this week. 
It was called "What NOT to do in first grade". I told the kiddos it would be a gift to next-year's students to help them make their way through the first grade. At first, they couldn't think of ideas but once I gave a few suggestions they had a BLAST! 

I had them act out their ideas and I took their photos with my phone. I uploaded them to my computer, added text and some backgrounds and we had ourselves a slideshow! They loved it! I'm going to print out the pages & laminate them for the book.

If you're looking for a fun end-of-the-year activity, this worked well for me!

Here are some of the pages:

    1. Thanks! If we'd had more time I might have had the kids write out the sentences themselves but I like the clean font-ness of making it in PP too! Glad you stopped by! Thanks!

  2. Alisha this is so cute! Thank you for sharing this!! Love it and plan to do it. I envy you're finished tomorrow. Lucky duck! Enjoy!!

    1. Thanks, Tiffany! I promise, when we're back at school and you're still on vacation, I'm super-jealous of you!
