Ways Educators Can Make the End of the School Year Exciting
  • Opening Intro -

    Compared to most other professions, teachers spend a lot of time making lesson plans with the curriculum that they have to work with.

    This can be a pain if your curriculum requires you to churn out new material weekly that is engaging to your students.


To lighten the load, here are a few ways educators can make the end of the school year exciting and celebrate everyone’s success in making it through the year.

Serve Up Some Memories

If you want to make the most out of your schoolyear as you wrap things up, you can show your gratitude for all the hard work the class has done by sharing memories. Now, there are several ways you can do this.

For example, you could have a class discussion about what happened throughout the year and supplement that discussion with a PowerPoint featuring pictures and notes. You could have everyone from the class contribute to the story by adding to the slides on the slideshow.

Or, you could make a game out of the highlights from the year, where you use those memories as puzzle pieces or clues to solve a mystery. Your students are sure to remember a fun end-of-the-year activity like this.

End of the Year Trip

Nothing says it’s the end of the year like a school field trip. What better way is there to congratulate and honor your class than by taking everyone on a trip?

Your students deserve a fun trip after all the hard work they did this year. They are more educated and understand more about the world from the perspectives that you provided them in your carefully planned lessons.

So, why not celebrate their victories and successes with a break from studying inside for hours and weeks on end?

You may need to do something creative like hosting a virtual fundraising event to raise the money for your trip.

You could even give some back to charity if you raise more than you need. This is also something to keep in mind as you plan for this end-of-the-year class trip.

Write a Speech

Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple and sweet. You never know how much your words mean to people until you let them know.

And for a teacher, in most cases, your students will look up to you as their leader and mentor. So, they will carry these words with them for years or potentially for life.

Send them off into their respective futures by imparting to them that teaching them has been such a privilege for you.

There are plenty of ways educators can make the end of the school year exciting, but making yours unique will also make it memorable. Take your time and keep all your students in mind so that it will be a special time that you will all talk about for years to come.
