If you haven't heard about the ABC Countdown before, it's a fun way to count down to the end of the school year! The last 26 days of school are themed- one letter-themed day for each of the 26 days. You can make this as elaborate or as simple as you want/need! Also, this does not have to be an all day thing! Some of mine will only be 1 hour or so.
I've included some ideas for each letter/day, and I bolded the days that I'll be doing, with some resources for my choices. If you like the theme that I picked for a day, feel free to use the same links. If you only like a handful of my days, use what you'd like! Hopefully this helps both teachers and students get through the end of the school year...
These are all FREE resources that I found through TeachersPayTeachers.
