For them, Summer means lots more time with their families. It means going on family vacations and having fun! They know that they will continue to see their friends during the summer because someone will arrange those play dates for them.
However, for some of our students, school is the safest place they know. Those students are uncertain what summer will bring… Who will be taking care of them? Where will they go? Will they see their school friends?
Some students’ behaviors will regress at the end of the school year as they deal with these feelings of uncertainty. We need to be extra careful to pay attention to these students and to make the end of the school year an enjoyable experience.
Here are ideas for end of year fun! You can get the links to these ideas on my Pinterest Board here: May and June Pinterest Ideas
