Welcome to Voki’s Thanksgiving Resources blog post!
As the holidays approach, you and your students are nearing burnout and are ready for a much needed break. Holiday trips are being planned, Thanksgiving Menus are being tested, and some are preparing for travel to distant places to see loved ones. Minds are elsewhere and you and your students are trying to get up enough energy to drag yourselves across that finish line. The struggle is real.
Our goal, as always, is to provide you with the resources and support that will make teaching just a little bit easier and a lot more engaging especially during this last sprint before the holidays.
That is why we’ve compiled a list of Thanksgiving resources. If we can give you one last thing to do and send you off to your loved ones feeling excited about that last lesson you taught (despite first term exhaustion) then we’re doing our jobs right.
Let’s get started!
