Boy, is that time of year or what!? For me, April is one F-U-L-L month! With Spring Break, report cards, conferences and test prep, it is hard not to feel stressed out.
So, as a fun way to take a step back, I have partnered together with some A-MAZING teachers to host this awesome giveaway with 4 lucky winners!
Before I get to the giveaway, I wanted to share some ways that I remain Stress Free.
1) Home life. I have learned how important it is to have a firm boundary between school life and family life. Now don’t get me wrong, I still bring home stacks of papers to grade and lesson plan a lot, however, I limit it. I will work through my lunch break to help catch up, and my husband (who is also a teacher) and I make sure to grade once the kids are asleep. As soon as we get home we are out side! We eat dinner outside, the kids play and we garden. Gardening has been a huge stress reliever for me!
2) Exercise: A GREAT way to relieve stress is to exercise! I especially love our weekly Spin classes.
3) Laughing: Whether it be laughing at the ridiculous text train that Michelle from Apples and ABCs and I send… seriously, no one actually makes me REALLY Laugh-Out-Loud from a text like she does.
…or it be me admitting an embarrassing teaching moment to a coworker about what popped up on on You Tube recommendations list on the projector. Laughter and being silly is a BIG way to relieve stress. This time of year is not only stressful for us but for our kiddos also. Testing takes it out of them. To relieve their stress, add some laughter and movement into the classroom. The Go Noodle Brainbreaks are awesome, and my class loves playing nation ball. For laughter, try playing Would you Rather… the things they come up with are AMAZING! * Be sure to set the rules so they know to be appropriate!*
