I planned a surprise donut party for our last art session. First we created coffee filter flowers, which were a big hit.
As the projects were drying I called each student up, one-by-one and presented them with a very official looking graduation certificate from Mrs. Stinson's art class (and we all cheered as each student came to the front of the class to accept their certificate).
You can print these free certificates here and fill them out with your own name and the names of your students.
We enjoyed our Krispy Kremes and talked about all the projects we created throughout the year. Then Miss Cook and the class surprised me with a gift!
(My son, Camden and I with a few class mates.)
They gave me the book, The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds, and each student signed the inside cover.
I think anything you can do to make each child feel special goes a long way in the memory of a child. Thanks Miss Cook and her 2nd grade class for a great year!
