Winter is often known as a “sweet spot” in education. The year has been going on long enough that students understand the expectations and routines. Additionally, teachers are able to focus on new content as students have fully adjusted from summer break. However, this area does have some tough spots. For instance, many teachers have to be flexible with snow delays and closings. Furthermore, attendance may be an issue due to illnesses that spread in the winter. Thankfully, the winter resources round-up will ensure students always have rigorous and engaging lessons no matter what!
