Every year we strive to bring you new useful year end ideas that you can implement in your classroom tomorrow, or modify to suit your class’ specific needs.
After you read the tips on this blog, be sure to check out the links below for other fantastic ideas from real teachers for teachers.
Keep up all of your classroom routines until the last day of school. This is not the time to try a new classroom management system or change routines that your students are familiar with.
Give students a chance to be the teachers. Plan your lessons so students are the ones teaching. You could use the jigsaw small group method or whole class instruction. I love to put students in charge of year end review.
Have your current students write an advice letter to your future students. In the letter, have your students write survival tips for achieving success in your grade. I save these for the first day of the new school year.
