Make the End of the Year Easy and Enjoyable + FLASH FREEBIE Editable Summer Bingo
As the school year draws to an end, it’s a mix of feelings for most students. Although they will miss school, most students are looking forward to Summer.
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 playdates for them.
However, for some of our students, school is the safest place they know. Those students are uncertain about 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
Have a sing-along with these original End of the Year Songs that are sung to familiar children’s tunes!
