Invite children to each create a time capsule. Encourage students to collect a few items that represent something important to them from the past year. Encourage parents to be involved, they can look through photos through the past year and print out a few to add to the time capsule. They can add their treasures to a shoe box that they decorate and take it home to share with their family, and then put it away to open again the following year.
During circle time invite children to share something that made them happy this year. You can also ask them to share something they are looking forward to in the new year.
