End of the School Year HACK for your Special Education Classroom


It’s the end of the school year in your special ed classroom and you are physically and mentally EXHAUSTED….am I right? Do you sometimes wonder how ON EARTH you might make it until summer break?

The end of the school year is always so busy and exhausting. It was always hard for me to navigate when I was in the classroom. First, it seems like at a certain point during the fourth quarter you can tell when the students are starting to “shut down”. Next, you need fun and engaging activities in which students are still learning. Finally, you have TONS of end of year meetings and paperwork to finish up and just no extra time to plan. There is a lot expected of teachers at the end of the year. Don’t worry-I’ve got the PERFECT hack for the end of the year in your special education classroom. All you have to do is literally follow these plans!

HACK-FOLLOW THESE END OF YEAR PLANS!

Why not have the final days of the school year already planned out? No I don’t mean start writing lesson plans right now. Simply follow these plans for The Last Ten Days of School for Special Education.

How would it feel to already have the final ten days of the school year (or probably more because you can stretch it out) already planned out for you? All you have to do is download and print.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE LAST TEN DAYS OF SCHOOL PLANS?

These plans for the end of the school year literally give you EVERYTHING that you need! They give a fun and educational end of the year experience for your students in special education. There are 50 end of school year activities to complete with your students. This means that you can do 5 activities per day for the final ten days of the school year. Luckily, It also means that you have plenty of wiggle room. These plans can easily be stretched out over the final month of school. The end of the year can be full of lots of extra school-wide activities! This can make it very busy and sometimes even difficult to fit academic work in!
