Social Sundays: Words of Wisdom

Social Sunday's summer hiatus begins next week. I've thought quite a bit about what I could say before the two month break. What words of wisdom I could impart for finishing the year. I thought and thought about it and decided that really students have often had the best words of wisdom for teachers. Below I share a few of my favorites. 

Please share your words of wisdom in the comments section.

Social Sundays is a bi-weekly post sharing tips, ideas, resources, and products for teaching social studies.  If you have questions or think there is something I should share, you can leave me a message in the comments below or at the store in the question and answer section.  



  1. It's easy to learn when you're having fun! Our brains "like" positive conditions to help build connections. The Powerpoint Jeopardy-style game I linked above has content specific to Canadian History, but the file can be updated with questions related to ANY topic... social studies or otherwise.

  2. Wow! There are so many great quotes posted here! I especially like "The best teachers are the ones who care about me." Some children only receive that kind of attention when they are at school - so it is important for me to make sure my students know that I care about them.

    Thanks for joining my link up! Happy vacation to you! I am sure it is well deserved!


  3. I love your quotes! I was at a PD the other day and the speaker said we really need to design our assessments around the students learning, not the teaching. I think that is so key and I think that is what your quotes are speaking to. Our kiddos love to learn, we need to make our instruction more learning centered then 'teaching' centered :) Great job! Have a great summer!
