5 Summer "Must Dos" for Teachers

Summer Vacation! 

Some of you have been on vacation for quite a while!

Others just barely started vacation.

Wherever you are in your vacation, it's well deserved, and I hope you're enjoying it!

But there are a few things to accomplish before the summer is over:

Once you've caught your breath, be sure to reflect on the past year. 

Think about your successes! What made them successes? What made them successes? What could make them even better? Will you try these next year?

Think about the things that didn't work this year. Why didn't they work? What could you have done to make them work? Will you try these next year?

What was the best part of the year?

You've worked hard and deserve to relax. Give yourself some down time where you don't have to think about anything!

One of my favorite ways to relax is to sit by a body of water and read, with my feet in the sand and a book in my hand! There are plenty of other ways to relax, too! What's your favorite?

It's quite possible that this can overlap with #2, but having fun is essential when you've spent the last 10 months dealing with a stressful job! Lunch with friends, dinner with the husband, or a water park with the family. Whatever is fun for you, it's the time to do it!

Be sure to include something that makes you laugh... it's healthy! A friend of mine refers to laughter is "Vitamin L!" 

Don't forget to take your Vitamin L!


Summer is really the only time of year I can escape into a book. During the school year, I'm reading books to improve my craft, or some other work related non-fiction. If I try to read for fun, I fall asleep!  It's time to escape into a book. I'd love to know about your favorite summer reads!

Yes, it's not too early to start thinking about the next school year. Maybe not too much yet, but start thinking about what you might expect this coming year. Since you already reflected about this year with #1, it won't be too much trouble to start thinking about the future. 


Enjoy these well deserved weeks! They'll be gone far too soon!

Working Summer Camp? Or Summer School? How to Get Started!

Are you going to be working with groups this summer? 
Perhaps you're working at summer camp...
or summer school...
or volunteering at the library summer program...
or helping out at a summer day care?


Working Summer Camp? Or Summer School? How to Get Started! Whether you're a camp counselor, summer day care leader, or summer school teacher, here are some fun ideas to get you started this summer! This blog post includes a Team Building Freebie!

No matter what type of summer work you're doing, getting started is possibly the most challenging part of the program!

You may have a variety of children. You might have a variety of ages. You might have some children who know each other. You might have a lot of children who don't know each other. You might have very young children, or you might have pre-teens, teens, or older!

No matter who you've got, before the real learning begins, it's important to help children feel comfortable with each other.

Whatever you do, don't put them on the spot or ask them to talk to someone they don't know right away. Some children love that, others can "handle it," but others will clam up and get nervous about the next activity they do with you. 

What we really want is to get them interacting without having to talk... at first! We might even do something that will get them giggling! 

Here are a few games that will get them interacting, possibly giggling, without traumatizing them! (With links to directions!)


Once they get comfortable with one another, it's time to try some games where they'll have to talk to one another:
