The weekend is over and it’s time to get back to work. It’s a bummer for everyone. When you walk into school on Monday remember you aren’t the only one who wants the weekend to continue. You set the tone; so put on your happy face, smile and greet your students. Make them feel welcomed. Give them a minute to tell you about their weekend. This is a great chance to make a connection. Here are some ideas for fun Monday morning activities.
Check out Jumpstart.com for fun activities at every level.
Check out ClassroomConfection for fun, free printables.
Check out objectiveanalyst.com for word games, puzzles and more.
Check out ESLkids for fun games and activities, great for low language kids!
And as always you can turn to Pinterest, twitter or facebook for good ideas. Just take a minute to have some fun. It can still be educational, but a minute or two to be a kid will help relieve stress for you and your students. Start the week off right!
