Countdown Chain

The end of the school year is such an exciting time for the students. I often hear “How many days do we have left until summer?” To answer this question for the students I have them make a “Countdown Chain.” When we get down to about 20 days left, I have the students use construction paper strips to make the chain. On one side of the strip they write “There are ____ days of school left!” On the other side they write about their favorite memory from the school year. Each day one student gets to share their part of the “Countdown Chain.” I love hearing about all of their favorite memories!
