Forget Christmas, June is the busiest time of year for all teachers! There are year end field trips, report cards, class placement meetings, class parties, band concerts, sports day and so much more. In the midst of all this, we are trying to impart our final bits of knowledge on students, while struggling with the year end intermediate behaviours that inevitably appear on those beautiful sunny days. July 1 will soon come and the bustle of this teacher season will be over. I rarely make New Year's resolutions, but I frequently make July 1 teacher resolutions. Next year I will . . ., No matter the class I will try . . . One of my resolutions this year will be to help truely get this blog up and running. I love that over a year ago I was convinced to join PITA and work with the amazing team! I hope to get into the habit of frequently posting with great, fresh ideas to start implementing in September!
As this year winds down, I also often get stuck on what to give my class at the end of the year. About three months I found this pin on Pinterest via "Drama Mama's Little Corner" blog. She teachers grade two, but I thought this was a 'Kool' idea for intermediate students! I'd probably give them out frozen, that way they can have it right away!
Enjoy the final weeks!
