For this week's writing inspiration, I chose finishing strong.
Poem: "See It Through" by Edgar Albert Guest
This poem is about finishing strong and seeing things through even when it seems too difficult. This does not directly apply to the end of the school year, but you could discuss struggles you have faced as a class this year and how you overcame them. This would be a great poem to discuss imagery. Maybe have students write their own poems about their struggles this year and what they overcame.
Quote: “There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.” - Frank Herbert
I chose this quote because I liked the idea that the end of the year is not really an ending, but a pause in the story.
Picture: Summer is here
I thought this picture was cute. Sometimes the reason to finish strong is the reward in sight.
Here is a freebie for summer and Manic Mondays at Classroom Freebies. It is a tic-tac-toe Reading menu/board that could be sent home for a summer activity. It includes summer themed reading activities differentiated by multiple intelligences.
Enjoy the last week or so of school!
