Do your students start getting antsy and restless before spring break (ok, really any break)? Or is that just my kiddos? 😉 I wanted to share some great ways to increase student engagement…especially if spring break is just around the corner!
If your students are wiggly and restless, get them up and moving! I love “write the room” activities because the students get to walk around AND build their literacy skills at the same time! How perfect is that?? Check out this FREE spring “write the room” here!
Ok, food is such a great motivator! One of my students’ favorite writing units is my “how to” writing one because we write about how to make different recipes – and then eat the yummy food after! I have to say, all my students participate happily. 😉 (Click the image for this writing unit.)
Hope these ideas help keep your students on task and engaged the next few weeks! Good luck! 😉
