Teachers and Administrators: Six Thoughts about what to do during the Break!

Getting ready for the holiday break always has an amazing effect on all staff and students. 

There are gifts exchanged and smiles everywhere. 

Well, maybe not everywhere...in high school the kids are taking exams but I digress...

The thoughts about having a break from classes and each other (believe me everyone has thoughts like these including the principal) are rampant! 

Here are my suggestions for using the time during the holiday wisely!

Six thoughts about what to do during the break!

1. Spend Time with Family!




Play ping pong, go for a walk, tell stories, have many dinners together, go to the zoo, play a board game, play sports, go fishing...so many ideas 

2. Watch a great holiday show!

One of my favorites...A Charlie Brown Christmas!





Or how about How the Grinch Stole Christmas!


or how about watch some old comedy with your family and have fun watching them laugh at Abbott and Costello figuring out math or Carol Burnett...especially, a show with Harvey Korman and Tim Conway like the dentist skit.

3. Write a letter to someone you haven't talked to in a long time!



4. Go see a movie

This one is on my must see list! Night at the Museum:Secret of the Tomb



If you haven't seen the newest penguin movie ...well worth your time...funny..! Great one-liners! Penguins of Madagascar



5. Read a good book!

Two on my plate....
Personal by Lee Child


and Star Trek: Seekers 1 and 2


6. Reflect on all that you have to be thankful for and get some sleep.

Doing these things will help you to recharge your batteries so that you are ready to take on the world when January rolls around!

So make the time...and take the time to have fun!

Enjoy!
