Happy Teacher's Appreciation Week! The Classroom Clique is joining together with a blog hop full of tips, tricks, freebies, and giveaways to show our appreciation for all of our fellow teachers!
Here are a few of my tips and tricks for surviving those last few weeks of school:
1. Start Cleaning, Organizing and Packing Up
I try to purge out anything that I have not used this school year, because I likely won't use it the next year as well, and with limited storage space, I can't be too sentimental with things. I also enlist the help of my current students to organize supplies and the library.
2. Prep For Next Year
I make copies of all the things I know I will need in the next year including my first few weeks of spiral math review, math journals, and homework. I also prep my math facts program (Kicking It).
3. Make Learning Fun For Your Students
You are not the only one who is ready for a break, your students are too! Take this time to play games and have fun with them. I try to incorporate extra games to go along with content such as Pie Face, Head Bandz, and Minute To Win It games.
4. Don't Forget To Have Fun As Well
Take time to laugh a little with your co-workers! Remember, this is the final stretch! You can do it!
