My Pinterest picks for May are all about activities that will hold kids’ interest in these weeks between testing and the end of school. Some are fun activities that you can only do at this time of year when things are finally slowing down just a bit. Some are end-of-the-year wrap-up or keepsake projects.

End of Year Activities, from The Learning Network at the New York Times
This article provides tried-and-true activities used by teachers to wrap up the school year. It includes extras like a slide show that can be used as an introduction to one of the activities and a set of questions to prepare students for another one.
Keeping Students Engaged at the End of the Year, from Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher blog
This teacher’s blog provides suggestions and fun activities to keep your students motivated in the last weeks of school. Suggestions are provided for new, creative projects that can be worked into your normal classroom routine.
Tie-Dye Keepsake T-shirt Project, from Scholastic Teachers
Here are directions for “faux tie-dying” a keepsake T-shirt using permanent markers – much less messy than real tie-dying, and the results look great.
As always, my collection of ideas on Pinterest keeps growing! I have boards for Spring and Spring Holidays, Summer and Summer Holidays, and the First and Last Days of School – check them out if you are interested!
