from-student-to-teacher: Fantastic idea! As an end of the year gift buy students beach-balls, they collect classmates signatures. they have a “ball”! Great idea for next year at the end of the year. They could write other things too.
"This year flew by but we remember ." and using kite writing templates is a great idea for end of year writing assignment and summer bulletin board display. We could add pics taken throughout the year.
