Summer is right around the corner, so how in the world do we keep our students engaged in learning when they are out of the classroom? No matter what type of school break, whether it is for a couple of days, weeks, or months, we can inspire our students to continue their knowledge journey in fun and creative ways! Join Shelly Terrell for this time-saving, to the point session as she shares a multitude of easy to implement, low-cost ideas and resources to keep students connected to learning over breaks.

    This sounds like a good topic. Students lose some knowledge retention during the long breaks.
