While other teachers are counting down to summer break. I’m ramping up for the Summer Enrichment Program. Don’t get me wrong, I’m counting down to the end of the school year also. The enrichment program is a totally different curriculum than my school year teaching.
I get to teach S.T.E.M all day long, four days a week. Then the fifth day we go swimming and play cranium busters. Cranium busters are fun games to expand your brain.
This program gives the students the opportunity to get hands on in a lot of different educational situations. Not only do I get to do tons of science with them, they do art, crafts, writing, drawing, physical activity and we get to go on some pretty awesome field trips.
I love how the students introduce me to their parents as the science lady. The kids are always so excited to do experiments. Sometimes they are so excited the experiments go off track. But I always remind them their is no such thing as a failed experiment, just an opportunity to discover something unexpected.
We are T-minus five weeks until the summer program starts. I’m getting closer to being ready. There are a lot of fun and exciting things planned and I can’t wait to experience them with the kids.
Are you working a summer program this year? If you are good luck and have fun.
