This is the final teacher tip of the 2015-16 school year. We hope you have found these tips helpful and will continue to subscribe to Watson’s Teacher Tips, which will resume on September 6 for the 2016-17 school year. Four things to do today:
- Create learning centers of fun items in your room – learning games, KiNex, parquetry – students can rotate to different centers.
- Caring Compliment Cards – clip large notecards to the back of each student and allow others to walk around writing compliments on the back of each student (you too). At the end of the day students take their card home.
- Send your students off with a smile and a word of inspiration.
- Put one arm in the air, palm facing away from you, bring down and pay yourself on the back. You are a great teacher!
