A couple years ago, I had a parent call me over winter break because her son was threatening to run away to go back to school and she didn't know what to do. I told her to use the calendar to show him how many days of break were left and start a "count down" for going back to school (it worked and he didn't run away ☺) He just didn't understand the concept of that many days off.
I also created this little worksheet for the kids to complete over spring break. I figured it would help them talk about their spring break when we came back to school.
You can get both of these FREEBIES here.
I like to take pictures of the things I do on spring break as well to share with the kids. This is a snapshot of little booklet I put together to share with my kids a couple years ago!
