Remember to think about these things....in the end a child won't remember the class lessons or the math or the spelling, but rather the impact YOU as a teacher had on them. The way you treated them and made them feel loved and worthwhile. It is those moments that leave a lasting impact and help shape the adult they become.
Great idea for end-of-the-year student gifts! Have each student (and yourself!) write one positive attribute for every student in the class. Then use those words to create a Wordle for every child. Print them out.
