We have all heard the phrase, run the race to win. When you see a well conditioned athlete run a race, often times you see them have a burst of speed in the final stretch and leaning into the tape to win the race. This is how we should plan to finish our school year… we don’t want to go into the last few days of school in cruise control, we want to finish strong. What are we teaching our students if they can just “pack their bags” in those final few days? We need to make sure we have activities that inspire and encourage our students to press through the finish line.
Don’t get me wrong, I know it has been a long road… but picture a marathon runner who has completed 26 miles of the journey and decides, I have gone far enough, I’m good with 26. They are so close to the finish…take advantage of those last days and continue to inspire and motivate your students to be their best and to press through to the finish!
