Year in Review
Take some time to reflect on this past year.

Today’s Activities


The events you are living through today will be part of history tomorrow.  Stories people write about parts of their lives can be used by people in the future to learn about the past.  Learn more with this BrainPOP Jr. video.

What will your future self remember about this year?  Use this HyperDoc to help you reflect on this school year, and write a letter to your future self.

Now create a one-pager about your memories from this year.  A one-pager is when you take a blank piece of paper and fill it with images, drawings, and words to share your ideas about something.  Look at some examples here.

Math skills

Keep up with your math skills over the summer by asking your parents to help you with some of the ideas in this newsletter.
