We all know that the end of the school year can be taxing for students, teachers and parents. As a member of the education community, we identify with the stresses that come along with preparing for end of year exams and the feeling of exhaustion that comes along with it. Between writing the exams, preparing your students for them and the ample time it takes to grade them, it can prove pretty difficult to keep your wits about you as you run out of steam.
It is important, however, to keep your chin up and gather as much momentum as you can to finish out the school year just as you started it: with energy and drive. School only occupies ¾ of the calendar year, so it’s important to optimize every moment you have in the classroom. Then it will be easier the following autumn to pick up where you left off.
The link attached to this post is a helpful guide to “10 Ways to Finish the School Year Strong,” covering topics like taking care of your health and ways to engage your students.
Get a lot of sleep, eat healthy, plan ahead and have some fun activities put together for your students to keep them active before your 2 or 3-month break! Enjoy your Summer months!
