“There’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want.”
So long, summer, we’ll miss you.
I hope you’ve all recharged your batteries, made unforgettable memories and are excited about your upcoming ‘new year’.
Here are my favourite activities to kick off the new academic year and transition back into the school environment and learning. Unlike the previous TOP 9 and TOP 9+1 and TOP 10 activities (see BACK TO SCHOOL ACTIVITIES), these are all Q&A activities that may be built around one set of so-how-was-your-summer questions.
One thing I tried this summer
One person I met this summer
One thing I learned this summer
One place I went to this summer
The person I spent the most time with this summer
The best/worst meal I ate this summer
Something I bought this summer
Something I made this summer
Something I lost this summer
The best word to describe this summer
