End of the Year Review and May Currently

So hard to believe that we are wrapping up this year.  I believe my paper chain that we made says 21 days.  CRAZY!  I wanted to review key items that we have gone over in ELA.  Each one is written on a small sheet of paper and placed in a balloon.  We pop a balloon each day that is hanging from our ceiling to find out what we are reviewing!  It's the 20 days of review!  We had to account for field day, field trips, etc. so we had to start a few days ago.  Here are the balloons in my living room floor before they made it to school.

My kiddos are LOVING this!  How do you make review more interesting for students?

And here is the May Currently from over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade...
