It is so fun to do end of the year activities in the classroom and do fun summer crafts, but the end of the year is more than just a lunge to the finish line--it's a great opportunity to tell your students that you care about them! The students who struggle the most in school academically and behaviorally are the ones who need the most encouragement.
Students who have been through hard things need teachers who will overlook the trauma and bad behavior and will communicate to them:
Take the time to notice all of your students this year by giving them cards with unique messages in them. Your students who make your day easy, notice their positive attitude. Your students who treat you poorly, notice something positive about them, maybe for the first time. Your students who struggle with school, notice their effort they have been making, no matter how small.
I believe in the value of education. But for kids, the value of a teacher who cares and notices them is more important than any academic truth they will ever learn.
