I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

12 Days Of Ideas #4: The Day Before Christmas Break

Today was the last day before our Christmas break and we just relaxed.

I don't know how many teachers in our building taught and how many showed holiday movies.

I didn't want to do either, so we did this...

Enjoy. Rest. Reflect. And... RELAX. And if you assigned homework for winter break call all your students' parents, apologize, and cancel it. NOW.

Happy Holidays!
