Product Description
Is your classroom climate getting a bit stale? Are you greeted on Monday mornings by the vacant, defeated and bleary-eyed stares of bored students?

School should be a place that students want to be. Classrooms should be places that foster engagement, learning and a strong sense of community. I work extremely hard to provide this for my students.

During my last teaching evaluation, my vice-principal recommended that I give workshops on ways to keep apathetic learners engaged. I decided to take all of the tricks I use and compile them into one handy document.

Here you will find a collection of games, activities and tips for keeping your classroom fun and exciting for students. Each game is clearly explained and comes with a full explanation of why it is a valuable asset to your classroom. (Sometimes games are not just games- sometimes there are sneaky reasons we do the things we do!). For some of your students, these activities provide a bright and fun addition to the day. For others, it is the deciding factor that determines whether or not they are going to haul themselves out of bed and show up for school.

Most of these games run alongside your regular programming and are meant to enhance your curriculum by keeping your classes vibrant. While they were designed for a core-middle school program, they are easily adapted to a wide range of ages and subjects. Best of all, these activities run throughout the year and are designed to take up very little of your class time, so you don't need to feel that you are competing with your mandatory curriculum expectations.

I regularly use every single activity listed here and they have been well-developed over time to work out any kinks and potential problems.

I hope your students enjoy them as much as my students do!
