    How do you close the year with your students? Do you give them a gift? Awards? Make a scrapbook? A special page? I want to give them something special to remember the year and class by, but don't want to get too involved with time or money on a project. Ideas, comments, suggestions?

    When I did a long-term sub position at the end of last year, I had the students make a newspaper with articles about events from the school year. First we brainstormed activities and events from the year and then each student had to choose something to write about (no duplicates) once they had their article written I taped them all together into a newspaper and made copies for everyone. This made it a writing assignment and a keepsake all in one.

    This was in third grade-we completed it in less than a week.

    What grade?!?
    I made a little scrapbook they had to fill in on my computer & printed it off for everyone. I gave the students time to get "autographs." I wrote a note about our year together. I did get some books from the book orders as gifts.

    I remember in 3rd we our teacher took our school photos & put like 2 to a page, then we picked out a wall paper scrap cover then we spent the last day writing a little note by our photo to the person whose book it was...
