End Of Year Countdown & Behavior

I can see the end!

We have 8 more days of school and summer will be all mine!

We all know that the last few days weeks months of school are challenging.... behavior wise!  Our patience is nearly gone, the kids are ready for a break, and we still have to plan, teach, and manage their behavior!

The last 10 days really begin our countdown!  My team at school and I have planned a a few things...

We have decided to do a *sweet* countdown for the last 10 days!

(Click on the picture to download!)

Instead of Banana splits, we are doing Behavior splits!
In my class, students will have their very own calender.  At the end of the day, if they have shown good behavior throughout that day, they will add an ingredient from the behavior splits list.  

At the end of the ten days (on the last day of school) they will get to create a behavior split (banana split) with the ingredients on their calender.

On the last day we will eat our banana behavior splits! 

The ten ingredients go in order.  So if the students shows poor behavior one day, the spot on their calendar will be left blank!  So at the end of the ten days if they only have five ingredients, it's all they get!  
(kinda mean...but hey, the kids really think twice about their choices now!  They want ALL of the ingredients!)

The list includes a blank copy as well if you need to change any ingredients or change the order!


We took this super cute (and fun!) idea from Pinterest! W have ten balloons at the top of our board and pop one each day!  Inside is a fun-filled activity for the day!

We have been busy with outdoor activities...... the lake....a cookout and some very competitive fun water volleyball!

  1. Love the idea of pinning the countdown balloons to the cork strip! We've seen hanging them from the ceiling, but we can't do that in our rooms. Thanks for showing this idea!
