Can you believe it is almost the end of Term 3. Some of my followers maybe lucky enough to be finishing today or tomorrow.
Here are some nice end of year ideas for infants, some nice keepsakes too.
I am always taking lots of different photos throughout the year, photos in Aistear, photos from the school tour and I also like to take individual photos at the start of each term. Last year I used Windows Movie Maker and I create a video clip using photos of the year with songs we have covered during the year. I added it to the blog using Vimeo for the parents to see too. The children loved it, they really liked to sing along to the songs while looking at their photos. The video also showed how much they have grown during the year too.
At the end of the year I always chatted about what they wanted to be when they grew up. On their individual blackboards we wrote: When I grow up I want to be a …. and they completed the sentence if they could, if not I wrote it in for them. I then took a photo of them with their blackboard. It’s something to keep for 6th class graduation but also cute to send home.
I like to take photos at the start of each term, last year I made a pic collage of their photos from the start of each term and I also added their photo from the above idea. I printed them in A4 and laminated them and gave them to the class on the last day. The parents thought it was a lovely keepsake of their time in Junior or Senior Infants.
