The personal learning network for educators

I like June, but not for the usual reasons. Yes, the school year is winding down, and the kids are getting "antsy," but I see it as an opportunity to think outside the box.
I can try all the things I wanted to during the year with a little less pressure on them to succeed.
Keeping them engaged is the main focus in these last few weeks, so the resource I try has to get their attention, and get it fast. We can have a little more fun, and celebrate all that we've accomplished this year. Students need to be reminded of how far they've come, and take pride in their efforts.
I even open the "Welcome to Technology" presentation I show in September, and we review what we've learned and what we came up short on. It's a way for me to reflect, and to model for the students what it means to try and not always succeed. It's also an opportunity for the students to tell me what they think about what I taught them.
June is not just counting down the days, but making the last few days with your students count.
