Gradebook, leave it at the school. Grading pen, put that cap on it. The papers that you did not get graded, do not worry about them; they will be there after the break. Spring is here, and Spring Break is here. Spring break means it is time to break the everyday school routine. Teachers, if you are unsure what to do with your Spring Break here are ten activities, I recommend you do during your Spring Break:
- Sleep– They say there is no such thing as catching up on sleep. Spring break is a good time for you to sleep in longer than you would normally. Do not set the alarm. If your body naturally wakes up earlier, just close your eyes and try to go back to sleep.
- Plan nothing– Do not spend this time planning lessons or activities that you will do when school starts again. This time is for you to rest. Get rest both mentally and physically. Planning requires thinking, and this is a think less break.
- Catch up on life– Work on your to-do list that the school year does not let you catch up on. Spring Break is the perfect time for you to go through the list and work on it. Look at the tasks you have to do around the house. Clean the attic, and rearrange your closet. Maybe pull out those spring clothes that you put away. Deep clean the kitchen and bathroom.
- Go Shopping– It is the spring which means it is a new season and time for some new clothes. Since you do not have to work, you can go to the mall when everyone is at work; you can shop until you drop. Get some new clothes for the new season and come back from the break with a new style.
- Read a book or two– You know those books you bought during Christmas break that you told yourself you would read, why don’t you dust them off and read them now? It’s spring break and the perfect time to finish those books. You have two weeks to catch up on reading.
- Workout– You know how you always say there isn’t enough time while school is in for you to workout. Use these two weeks and use this Spring Break to work out and get back into shape. Spring break is an excellent time to get a routine for your workouts.
- Road Trip– Whether you have your children or your friends get together and take a trip, I recommend keeping the trip under a 3-hour drive something that you can do in a day. Go visit a new city to get away from the city that is comfortable.
