Transcript

  • 1. Things To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do
    Surviving the awkward extra time
    at the end of class
    By: Dani Masnica
  • 2. The Awkward Time
    The students are finished with their work with 8 minutes left in class. Do you assign them extra work? Do you let them have “free” time?
    WHAT DO YOU DO????
  • 3. PANIC!
  • 4. Just Kidding!
    I really enjoy getting to know my kids and getting them to talk about stuff that isn’t always academic. Having a personal connection with them is very important and some of these end of class activities are great ways to have students open up.
  • 5. Plexers
    A plexer is a type of word puzzle in which a word picture is created to represent a common phrase
    Great brain teasers for middle or high school students
    Builds students’ confidence
    Teach students old and new English expressions
    Easy to find online, in the newspaper, or plexer books!
  • 6. Examples of Plexers
    *Answers: “Once upon a time”; “Western Division Champions”; “foreign language”; “an after thought”
  • 7. Optical Illusions
    Kids go crazy over these!!!!
    They all see things from different perspectives (this starts great “life lessons” talks)
    Easy to find online or in a book
    Kids enjoy explaining what they see or trying to figure out how it works
  • 8. Are the lines straight?
    Do the stairs go up or down?
  • 9. Give Teenagers GOOD Advice
    Read short passages from “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” or “Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul”
    Most of them will like the stories and they have good morals and values
    These stories can prompt good discussionsand get students really thinking
  • 10. Other Ideas
    Tell all students to have an SSR book and give a reward for those who do
    Get to know your students- chat about the upcoming weekend or school sports
    Have a challenge problem on the board
    Tell them a story about your life- past jobs, childhood experiences, fun trips. They really like to know that you are human too!
  • 11. Good Luck!!!!
