End of the Year

I have survived day 1 of our state testing! It is always so exhausting! I cannot wait until it's over and we can begin the fun end of the year activities!

I was thinking about the end of the year and I thought it would be cool to do a Rock Star themed end of the year unit! Initially I was thinking of a Space theme, but them I realized Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants beat me to the punch!  =)

I literally just started working on it tonight, but here is what I have in store:

Rockin' Memory Book (including the band - your class picture, your groupies - friends, and don't forget the lead singer - your awesome teacher, tour schedule - your year of fun events)
ipod playlist - Favorite songs from this year
How to Rock out the _____ grade writing prompt
Next year, I hope to Rock out ______ grade by writing prompt
Rock Star Classroom Awards (RSCA's) 
Thank You Speech - students thank all of the people who contributed to their success this year
My summer playlist - students list things they wish to do
Word Search
You're a Rock Star note from teacher
Rockin' Writing Portfolio
Guitar Craftivity
Boom Box Venn Diagram

Here is a preview! 

It's not much yet, but stay tuned! HAHA Get it?

I hope to have this finished this weekend, but who knows!?

What do you guys think? Any suggestions? I am still in the brainstorming stages so I welcome suggestions!

Don't forget my TPT sale ends tonight and the Hear All Assessment Recorder giveaway ends tomorrow night!


  1. How about Rockin Out with My Friends...and they draw their friends. Or a Rock Star Autograph Page?
    First Grade Blue SKies

  2. I LOVE it!!!! I had a Rock Theme all year and this is perfect. Is there an autograph page in the memory book or maybe a picture frame that could be signed.

    1. I love this idea! I can' believe I didn't already think of that! See, this is why I love my blog friends! =)

  3. Great minds think a like! I like the ideas you've posted. I did a Rockin' out of ___ grade mini unit a few weeks ago that is up on TPT.

    1. Aw man! Here I was thinking I was being original! HAHA I need to go check it out!

    2. I did not go in as much detail as you did! I kept it very mini! Writing sheets, craftivity, and a little mini book! I like the ideas you have listed! I was in such a rush, I didn't really think it all the way out! Another newer seller also posted something about a week after I did:/. We can do a give away once you are done if you want!

    3. I think that is a fabulous idea Alisha! I am definitely in for that! I'll let you know when I finish it!

  4. Not much yet??? This is great! And it is adaptable to any grade level. I always stuggle to find ways to keep the students engaged through the homestretch! I cannot wait to see your finished product!
