LOVE this idea! Begin the countdown to the last days of school when there are only 10 days left... print out the "activities" sheets, then cut and insert each little slip of paper into a balloon and inflate them. Lastly, number them 10-1 and put them up in the classroom. Let the countdown and fun to the end of school commence!

Homework bingo - If they turn in their homework for that morning they get to write their name on any square. On friday's I will pull out two bingo chips...and whatever names are on that square they will be able to pick out of the treasure box. Know a teacher who does this, the kids love it
