At the end of the school year, have this year’s kids write letters to next year’s kids. Give them suggestions on topics to include, such as behaviors to avoid (so they don’t get in trouble or make the teacher mad), advice for getting all their work done, some great treats to look forward to that are annual events, and what cool projects the new students can expect. These letters will make the transition to your class a little easier, and it’s a way for one class to connect to another class. It’s a great practice on letter writing skills for your current kids as well.
