It's hectic, it's out-of-rhythm, it's the end of a school year! It's also a great time to finish the year on a positive note that will build into next year. Here are 3 ideas for ending strong — and how LiveSchool can help.

Host a Class Party and Awards Superlatives

A wrap-up party — whether in-person or virtual — is a great way to end the year on a fun note. Our favorite techniques for a celebratory break:

Prompt Student-Led Reflection

Ending the year with self-reflection can be a great way to help students set growth goals for next year. It's also a no-pressure opportunity for them to do some writing.

Teachers regularly share with us how powerful student introspection can be when  LiveSchool data is used as a prompt. To give students a "snapshot" of their behavior, batch print Student Dashboards for your class!

Pair the data with reflection questions to get them thinking:

Our last tip: ask students to format their reflection as a letter to their future selves. It only takes about 20 minutes to fill up a single piece of paper starting with the prompt "Next year, I will..." Bonus points if you can collect the letters and deliver them to students when the summer break is over!

Try Out New Classroom Management Habits with LiveSchool

Your daily classroom management techniques likely start to flex towards the end of the year — so why not try out some new classroom management techniques and see what works for you? LiveSchool has a variety of things you can try.
