This summer I am teaching summer school at the local high school to help keep my teaching certificate up. It has been a change going to work when I have had a break for a couple of years! I teach special education students with varying abilities, and I love it. It is a great reminder to me of how much I love these kids, we have a lot of fun, and their is never a dull moment! To start the students off in the morning, they write in a summer journal!
I have found questions that are hopefully fun and require some critical thinking skills. I typed the questions in a Google document, you can see them above or find them HERE!
I printed the questions off on bright colors, cut them into strips, and placed them in a fancy jar that I had on hand.
Each morning a student chooses a subject from the journal jar and I have them write about it. Some students can not write so we have them talk about the subject or draw pictures. It has been a lot of fun, and helps the students to keep thinking and writing during the summer. This would be a great thing to do with kids at home!
