Sweet Goodbyes!

I am sharing a creative idea to end the day for little learners. It is a fun way to say 
goodbye using dessert words!
There are 20 card pages with two dessert goodbyes on each sheet for 40 sentences, 4 goodbye sentences without desserts, the title page and a page of directions.

Assembly: Print the pages out on the front side only. The thicker the paper, the more durable they will be, then laminate if desired.

Cards: There are 40 goodbye dessert cards with words and pictures. There are two dessert card sentences to each sheet. These can be cut apart into two separate cards or simply keep them together. The name of the dessert is on each card with a rhyming word for leaving, goodbye, etc. 
Activity: When introducing the activity at the beginning of the year show the children the cards and explain what each dessert is. Read the sentences and discuss the meanings of the different words.

You can also decide or decide together if a movement or motion is to go with each card. For example, “You stroll, jellyroll.” could be a strolling step as they go out the door. “Give a shake, cupcake.” could be a shaking hands motion while leaving. Part of the fun is making up and creating an action that goes with each dessert! 

As the little learners practice the different cards and sayings they will be able to read them, plus they become a learned memory. They will also be able to pick and choose which dessert they might decide to be as they lineup and leave each day, plus doing their own movement or motion out the door!

What dessert do they feel like today!

You can use as many or as few sentences as you would like, plus switch them around from time to time!

Another fun idea to share the different desserts during the year, especially for little ones that have never had or heard of certain desserts! Truly a special activity to share!

Enjoy!
