Top Pieces of Advice Using Vocabulary Words

The concept for this last week of school activity came about when I was writing my farewell message to seniors. When I wrote out my advice for graduating seniors, I infused the advice with vocabulary words. As I finished writing, I couldn't help thinking how fun it would be to have my senior students write something similar to junior students.

When I sat down to create the vocabulary worksheet, the activity evolved into an exercise for all grade levels. Children of all ages have valuable advice locked away in their heads!
