TIME FILLERS FOR SCHOOL DAYS BETWEEN END OF TESTING AND SUMMER BREAK
By
Linda M. Penn
 
            The time between end of accountability tests and summer break was a hard time for me as a teacher – the kids were worn out, as was I.  There tended to be a let-down time and it was difficult to keep up enthusiasm for learning.  Of course, there were lots of interruptions – Ex. school assemblies, award ceremonies, field trips, and Field Day.  If someone got on a child’s nerves during the school year, it was doubled now because of looking forward to getting away from that other child for a couple of months.  The limits were being stretched and student behavior sometimes took a downturn. 
 
            Here are some ideas for you teachers to use during those last days of school.  Please adapt the ideas to your students’ ages and abilities.
 
1)    Count chocolate chips in a Big Cookie slice.
2)    Math bees, Spelling bees, Sight words bees, foreign language bees, geography bees, etc.  (I hope these are not taboo in your school!)  My students always loved them.  I generally had the activities with groups of 2 or 3 students, rather than individuals being on the “hot seat.”
3)    Make smaller words from a large, multi-syllable words.
4)    Bingo games – not just regular bingo, but cards with any subject matter.
5)    Crossword puzzles – can do in groups of 2 or 3 students.
6)    Word searches – can do in groups of 2 or 3 students.
7)    Student begins a silly story and each participant adds a sentence.
8)    Students pass a ball and say rhyming words, capital cities, etc.
9)    Bring in ads and students guess the price.
10) Nature walks, listening walks.
11) Invite parents to share about their jobs or hobbies.
12) Invite local authors to give a reading and share about being an author.
13) Invite local dignitaries (mayor, fire chief, etc.) to share about their jobs.
 
I searched “Time Fillers for Teachers” on the Internet – helpful websites galore!
 
MOST OF ALL – HAVE FUN!!!!
