With the mild weather throughout January and February, it seems that our students began preparing for summer much earlier than normal. While it may seem cliche, I do feel we are tasked with making the days count rather than counting the days. Make a promise to yourself and your students to stop with the end of year countdown! Give your students a reason to look forward to coming to your classroom, even on those warm April and May afternoons. Collaboratively plan units that will engage our students, provide real world problem-solving opportunities, and allow students to create. While this should be happening all year, it’s especially important as summer break grows closer. If you’re looking for resources to help facilitate collaboration, check out our mini-grants. Applications are due June 1 and are available on our website,
