You might recall from my previous post that I do an ABC Countdown at the end of the year. Even if you don’t do a countdown, you can easily incorporate many of these “days” into your end of the year! One of the days my kids loved was Jigsaw Puzzle Day. We put puzzles together and made our own puzzles, too!
I have a cabinet full of puzzles I’ve acquired from places like the Dollar Tree that my kids like to put together sometimes when we have indoor recess. It’s amazing how many of them don’t even have puzzles at home! We work on puzzles throughout the day on Jigsaw Puzzle Day.
Here’s a close up:

We also made puzzles all about 4th grade. This was during Teacher Appreciation Week, so you’ll also see all of my gorgeous flowers they got me! :o) The finished puzzles are something fun and colorful for the wall- and my kids loved looking at everyone else’s when there was some free time.

If you want to make a smaller puzzle, Krista has some free puzzle piece clip art you can download!
I hope this will be a fun way for your kiddos to reflect back on the year! I know mine sure enjoyed it! :o)
