During those last exciting days of the school year, a long-awaited tradition is the distribution of yearbooks --and the student celebration of collecting and giving messages. Often these messages are full of happy send-offs and good memories shared. But sometimes students feel overwhelmed with the demands to write something quickly, and by default, they may come up with remarks that are trite, illegible, and sometimes, even inappropriate.
This packet gives you a set of activities to help them prepare for the chance to think and write something more individualized, and to practice using pictures from a typical annual, with hints to get them started. It includes a handout to use for a class discussion to use before the writing practice, and ends with an extension idea to give your students a chance to help other classrooms prepare for the big day when yearbooks arrive.
The packet includes a page of pictures to go with writing prompts, but you can also replace the pictures and prompts with pictures you borrow from a yearbook from another school nearby. (It is advised that you don’t use your own school yearbook archives, because the practice is then harder for students. )
This packet includes scripts for you to begin the simulation, handouts for the pre-writing class discussion, and a page of prompts for writing with a page of annual pictures to go with them.
There is also a suggested extension in which your students might be able to go to other classrooms and lead a similar discussion with their peers, which might make the entire outcome of this year’s yearbook celebration the best yet.
There are 7 pages in this packet, and the handout pages are ready to go! Happy endings!
Please watch for more of my creations this summer! Mary Ann Johnson

Truffala Tree Grows Magically
When you finish reading The Lorax, there is no guarantee what will happen to that very last seed. But for your students, you can magically bring the tree to grow before their eyes. The basic props are the center of a paper towel roll and some tissue paper. You will need to practice, because the tissue paper is soft and needs a gentle lift. But the kids will be able to end the story with a hopeful dramatic finale.
And the growing tree top can also work with a unit on saving the rainforest, Arbor Day, or any time you may be planting a tree at your school or in a nearby public place. It is pretty enough to save on your paper towel holder for a base.
Follow the directions exactly, and the rewards are worth it!

It is almost time for final exams, and you already have too many papers to grade in the little time left. And the kids think that school is already over for the year. So what can you do is to get them thinking about the important information they learned this year-- by assigning them some choices for how to tell you the Top Ten Ideas They Learned. You will find out some of the most interesting evidence of what they have taken from your course, and find a grading format to make the final assessment manageable.
The project is to assign students to create a poster, book or composition letting you know what they think were the ten most important and interesting ideas they learned in your class. They can work individually, or in small groups. Everything you need for the assignments and rubrics for grading are included in this packet. Students will even do a Self -Assessment, and a Memo Form is included for students to share comments.
There is enough choice for students to fit all learning styles, and to allow students to see in what ways their own choices are similar and different from the choices of other students. This project is engaging and satisfying for students to affirm what they have learned, to see how it compares with what others took from the course, and to make that last grading chore totally engaging and rewarding for you, as well.
