This last month of school can be challenging for everyone. Kids are squirrely. Parents are feeling burned out from all the end of year activities and a full year of homework battles. And, teachers are at their wits end trying to keep everyone engaged just a little bit longer. Not to worry, we have some great ideas for brain breaks and alternative learning activities to keep the kids interested.
Create a drawing a day until school is out. Young Rembrandts has over 50 two minute how to draw videos on their YouTube page. There is sure to be something every child is interested in learning to draw.
Over the years we have created a lot of visual learning activities to put a more creative spin on regular school assignments. Take a look at our Teachers Pay Teachers store and see what might work for the visual learners in your life.
Reward your kids for a job well done this year. Schedule Young Rembrandts to come to your school to teach an hour long art class as a visiting field trip.
Young Rembrandts designed some coloring pages that are more complex than traditional coloring books but much less overwhelming to color than many adult coloring books. Coloring is great for teaching mindfulness and getting the kids to focus. Plus, it’s fun! Once you download them you can print them off as many times as you want to create so many different color combinations.
Bring Young Rembrandts into your class! Download these fun activities, for free! Art is a powerful way to learn. It offers children a relaxing, stress-free and pleasurable way to learn and critical thinking skills that boost confidence and build self esteem.
We would all rather be outside as the weather warms up and the sun begins to shine more days than not. Do you have any tricks for keeping the kids engaged as the school year winds down? Let us know in the comments below.
