“Plan your next holiday break and future breaks.”
“In the evening, clear work worries by writing them down and (physically) putting them aside for now.”
“Set the clock for 30 minutes and tackle one nagging task.”
“Plan a new display with your students – head to Sparklers Emotional Roller Coaster activity for one idea!”
“Give students some time to sort their bags, spaces or tote trays (or help with that messy area in the classroom).”
“Put in a request for the broken fittings and things in your classroom or around the school to be fixed.”
