Digital activities and tools:

1- Memory Book
Here are some digital tools to help you and your students create memory books :
Use Google Docs or any other word editor that you and your students are familiar. We prefer Google Docs because it has an integrated feature that allows you to convert  documents into PDFs with a single click. Once converted you can then upload and turn your PDF into a nice looking book using one of these tools:
2- Creating posters
This is a good way for you and your students to highlight and capture those memorable events that took place in the class during the year.
3- Bulletin Boards
Use the tools below to invite students to contribute in creating a class board where everyone gets to share what they learned .
4-  Gather student Feedback
