Books for the End of the Year - Workshop Wednesday (I know!!!)


I know it is not Wednesday but I really, really, really wanted to link up with Jivey for one more Workshop Wednesday before the end of the school year. So here it is....

The theme is books you use at the end of the year. I am going to share how I use books for my ABC theme days as we count down our final 26 days (we are on day 24, woohoo!).

So, as you know I use the ABC countdown to keep us having fun and learning and motivated for the last few weeks of school. Some days it is something small - like chewing bubble gum for B day - other days it is an all day affair with theme activities and learning all day long.

Tomorrow is such a day. Tomorrow is D for dog day. Here are some of the books I am putting out on the reading shelf for my students to enjoy.


My grade 4's will be using activities from Erin's (at I'm Lovin Lit) Dog Day pack! It is amazing!

We will also do this little activity to review area and perimeter one more time : )

It is a freebie in my TPT store, click here to pick it up.

Other upcoming full day theme days.

Ice Cream Day - this day will be a focus on math so no books to share
: (
We will be just using this....

Lemonade Day - we will be reading this book (warning, very touching story!!)


and reviewing skills with this
Phew - it seems like we still have a lot to do : ) and the warm weather has finally arrived and replaced our motivation with silliness!!!


  1. You are so organized! 26 days of countdown would send me over the edge. The most I managed was 10 and this year will probably be 3! We have 7 days left (AAAAACK!!!) and I have so much left to do our countdown will be about the last five minutes of the last day!

  2. I start a countdown in my head for the 180 days until the end of the school year. Each day I silently countdown how many days until retirement also. You are one brave soul to countdown 26 days with activities. It would take me 26 years to get that organized....unless you came and did it for me!!!

  3. LOL all these peeps commenting with no love for the abc countdown abilities!!! ;-) I love all these ideas, of course! Thanks for linking up! xoxo

  4. What a fun idea! I may need to keep this in mind for next year - we only have 4 more days left this year - woo hoo! I did try to do different themes for the last few weeks, but I love the abc theme.

  5. Such great activities! I bet this makes the end of the year fly by....I should try this. We have 11 days left and they are dragging. Thanks for sharing!
