I don’t know about you, but April always seems to be a crazy month. It is filled with Spring Break, Prep for Testing, Testing and a plethora of other events. We are getting close to the end of the year, but school is not over. Sometimes it is hard to keep my students in that mindset!
I like to change things up at this time and I am sure to add interactive activities. Here are a couple of the ideas coming up in my classroom to try and avoid spring fever!
- TASK CARD Egg Hunt: Basically regular task cards hidden in eggs around the room!
- Jenga Review: What a great way to review key concepts with an intense game 🙂
- Brain Breaks – to break up the monotony! We use dance breaks with baby shark and the cha cha slide. We also play quick games shake it out and Gorilla, Man, Gun!
Something that I have seen other teachers do for test review is a carnival! Check out this youtube video:
