For fourth graders, celebrate your year together with a fun graduation to fifth grade activity. Skip the t-shirts or autograph books this year and sign autographs on beach balls! They’ll love them and get use all summer long.

I think a group of fifth graders might enjoy a little walk down memory lane – and not just over the school year, but their elementary years. Create a themed look into their past with a fun hook for each writing activity.

For example, think “frozen in time” and hand out popsicles as they remember and write moment of sheer panic at school. Or write about a crazy cool day in first or second grade they still remember fondly as they enjoy punch from krazy straws.

No matter how you wind up celebrating this year’s graduation, I hope you’ve had a fantastic school year!
