Staying Motivated to the End of the Year!!

May 15, 2017

My daughter-in-law is a kindergarten teacher and this is her last week before summer break. I can't believe we are at the end of the year.  It has flown by for me because I'm not working in the schools anymore, but that doesn't mean I don't understand how difficult it can be to keep your head in the game and motivate the kids to work as well.  So let me share with you some motivating activities the help you get through these last days!


My new search and find activities are always good because you can target articulation and some language skills because they stimulate conversation and naturally have position concepts due to the location of the hidden objects!
