End Of Year Activities
Updated: Jun 15, 2021
The end of this crazy school year is approaching for many of us (some are closer than others....I'll be teaching until June 26th) and because of this pandemic school year, there are many traditional end of year activities that we won't be able to do. Here are some fun ideas for what you can do with your classes to make sure this year ends on a good note!

This one definitely depends on your groups and what they are into but I have a class that is very theatrical and who love to sing so this is the perfect last music class activity for them. This would work well in a virtual setting and in person because even if students have to wear a mask, they have to sell the performance with the expression of movement. Make a document with song choices and get students to sign up and battle each other. You could even make cards for students to fill out and vote for who did better or just have fun with it and keep it totally informal!

I have this resource in my store and every year my students LOVE it! It's such a great way for students to reflect on their school year and it's all wrapped up in this cute little flip book. Best part is, you get both the digital and printable version of this

I feel like I have said this A LOT this year but use your outdoor space and take music classes outside! My school has a huge outdoor space and one area that has rocks so that everyone can sit comfortably in a circle. We have used our outdoor space a lot this year and for me it has opened my eyes to how many fun activities we can do outside.

Students love to be involved in anything playlist related. Whether you are making a playlist for a virtual dance party. listening party or just to play in the background while you are doing some work, they want int! This is a great way to boost student spirit!

This has been a hit with my junior students and I know many of you have already done this with yours and have been so kind to message me to share just how much they love it. This is a fun activity where students act as though they are a band manager putting together the greatest band of all time!
