We all seek fun around in every way possible. It doesn’t matter what level we are at; we try to track down our course of action that makes us complete our tasks involving fun. Then, as far as school-going kids are concerned, they kind of direly need it to keep going well. Making students follow the pace to cover their curriculum is somehow left behind and lags, which makes them thwart. Thereby, the school’s last few weeks can be high time to introduce some jollification enrichment activities.
1. Students Being Teachers
You can allot some 20-30 minutes to each student in your class to teach any mini-lesson or share whatever passion they possess and anything they want their class to do with them in that time slot. Fun is really important for children because it helps develop skills in them, such as the time they have during their recess, that physical activity helps them develop motor skills.
2. Letter Writing
You can allow your students to write a letter to themselves about how the experience was, what they learned, and how and where they see themselves in the future. In truth, they need such fun to reflect on what they have done and what they must do to ameliorate. Additionally, they can be asked to write a letter to the newcomers to their class. They can welcome them and advise them for their best.
3. Ask Away
You can arrange a questioning session to let them share their plans for their vacations and lend them a chance to make friends. They can chit-chat cordially in a friendly environment. Also, they can be permitted to ask questions to their lovely teachers. It can enhance the bond shared between them. A bond to share everything and cherish the time spent together is quite important between teachers and students.
4. Class Enduring Book
Students can create a collection of books for the library, namely “Class Enduring Book.” The intention of writing this book will be to guide future students on the adventures that they are about to face. Every student will contribute a page to this book, and this book will then be kept in the library. It will teach them what they cannot learn if it’s done with many instructions binding them to follow. Children love to break the rules.
5. Show Time
You can dedicate a little time for them to watch their favorite show. Students would love to watch it together with their friends. Not only this, but you can also ask them to read any of their favorite piece of the story for their friends or to recite their poetry. You can make them present some talent show or any dramatic actions they want to direct and perform. Also, arrange puppet shows and magic shows for them to let them participate and relish.
6. Depart outside!
Children are always fond of having fresh air outside and enjoying themselves with their friends. You can bring them to some amusement park, swimming area, for bicycle riding, etc. They usually spend their time outside while they are at home. But they crave to spend some time outside during their school time. Also, they can relish being outside with their teachers as well that they miss being home. Physical activities are equally salient for school-going kids.
7. Creating a Class Memory Book
Students read their course books and sometimes don’t either want to. You can ask them to write their book, sharing the beautiful memories that they have made with their friends. It all depends if they want to write down their book, or the students can create them online for higher grades. You can also give them riveting topics to write on them. You can ask them to share their favorite activity or their favorite memory that they had. Children always love telling stories, and they would enjoy this session of theirs.
8. Making A Memorable Class Video
You can compile all the pictures of your students taken throughout the year. It will then end up being a farewell video. You can also add live footage of children sharing their experiences and talking about their friends and quality time together. You can merge them as well. The senior students can even add captions for those photographs and some background sugared music. Children are affectionate about such activities. You can ask them to pose cutely. They can also have time to click pictures with their favorite teachers and then keep those pictures with them forever.
9. Camping Reads
What do children not love when it comes to camping? You can make this camping session a great step towards learning. Set up the tents, turn off the lights, and close the blinds. You can then ask children to read with flashlights. They will not disregard their camping session ever in their life. You can even extend the camping session for a few days or weeks and then decide on a different activity each day. They can glow ring toss. You can ask them to play a treasure hunt as well.
10. A Theme Day
How can it contribute and play its role in the fun?
Children love to dress up the way they want. You can devote the last week of school to separate them each day. You can make each day of their last week fun and catchy for them. Moreover, make them celebrate rainbow day (to allow them to wear as many colors as possible), ghost day (dressing up as a ghost and making the classroom a haunted place), fruit day, magical day (dressing up like magicians), cartoon day (dressing up as their favorite cartoon characters), when I grow up day (dressing up like the way they want to) and silly hat day.
