We’re all going on a summer holiday.
For the parents out there, how do you keep your kids occupied throughout the summer holidays?
Reblog with your favourite thing to do?
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it.
Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it.
That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on or better yet, if you’re a parent or a teacher, do it with your child/children.
So I’ll be working in a primary school from September onwards as a teaching assistant. Awesome!
Educational but fun trips!
I love that I was able to find the teachers resources are accessible on the “Visit Sealife” page. These would be great to print out even if taking your own children to these places.
CV writing workshop
Have a look at this link:
Recommended age: 14+
Tell pupils to think of their dream job, and then fully customise a CV as if they were going to apply for that job.
If the pupils are older, and soon to finish their education, (e.g. the last few weeks of the summer term) tell them to find an actual job they want to apply for, or a summer job, and again customise a CV relevant to this.
Do you have any other ideas to add to this?
So, I’m thinking of starting to add lesson plans for fun lessons onto here. Thoughts?
