    Hi @NWEFoust Jessica Greene, MWE...I just finished Girl, Wash your face and am working on The Woman in the Window! #wearewayne

    Q1: How do you recharge during this very busy end of the year sprint? Please respond with “A1: …,” and don’t forget your #wearewayne tag!
  • Erwin13Alicia May 1 @ 8:05 PM EDT
    A1: Leave my cellphone inside and enjoy the beautiful weather with my family! #bepresent #WeAreWayne

    Kids loved reading aloud their roles of a short story today! They figured out pacing and tone so much more quickly than reading alone. Plus, a little fun never hurt! #WeareWayne @LHCMagic
  • NWEFoust May 1 @ 8:06 PM EDT
    After "testing season" it can be difficult to keep the steam to the end of the year. This article from HotChalk suggests having a special project that you and students look forward to. https://t.co/iLNKt2dD0O #wearewayne

    I am currently reading The Alchemist and The Entrepreneur Mind. #WeAreWayne

    Dan Wilson, Principal Lynhurst Center...A1. I failed. I'm fighting a terrible head cold, mainly due to getting little rest. It's ok, though, because it is MAY, and it is finally WARM! I'll knock it out soon, but just too much to do! #wearewayne

    A1 Plan one night off and "play", exercise, laugh and bless others. #wearewayne
  • WayneTwpSuper May 1 @ 8:07 PM EDT
    Sorry, I'm late. Jeff Butts, Superintendent. #wearewayne
  • Dr_G_Alazar May 1 @ 8:07 PM EDT
    A1: Ghirmay Alazar, #TeamOSS. I focus on all the GREAT things happening @WayneTwpSchools. This gives me energy everyday #WeAreWayne
  • WayneTwpSuper May 1 @ 8:09 PM EDT
    Reading Thrive by Arianna Huffington. It's about finding our balance, returning to our baseline, adjusting our priorities. #wearewayne
  • NWEFoust May 1 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    Q2: What movement/brain break activities are you using right now to help students recharge to help them stay focused and centered in class? #wearewayne
  • emleonard111 May 1 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1: Staying active at the gym, getting the yard ready for summer fun and relaxing on the back deck with a good book. I'm hoping to do at least one of these each night! #WeAreWayne
  • Dale_Chu May 1 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    HAPPENING NOW: @emleonard111 and @NWEFoust leading a chat on “May brains.” Follow along at #wearewayne!
  • WayneTwpSuper May 1 @ 8:10 PM EDT
    A1: Recharging is really about being in the moment and finding time to focus on "self". For me, it happens between 05:30 and 06:30 each morning @CrossFit317. #wearewayne
  • MrsCarlino May 1 @ 8:11 PM EDT
    A1: To recharge, I enjoy family time! Lately it has been spring projects around the house and yard! #alltheleaves #exercise #landscaping #WeAreWayne
  • WayneTwpSuper May 1 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A2: Had the amazing opportunity to square dance with the scholars @MWEwayne today. #wearewayne
  • LHCWilson May 1 @ 8:13 PM EDT
    A2 I work on my Jeep, with my kids' help, of course! Also, @IMS opens up with Indycars! Watching cars inches apart at 230mph gets my mind off of pretty much everything! Then there's our smiling students. If that doesn't lift you, nothing will! #wearewayne
    In reply to @NWEFoust, @IMS
  • jclambert33 May 1 @ 8:13 PM EDT
    A2: Love what @SandersSELF has done, the walls are integrated with sensory activities that scholars can access 24/7 #WeareWayne
    • NWEFoust May 1 @ 8:10 PM EDT
      Q2: What movement/brain break activities are you using right now to help students recharge to help them stay focused and centered in class? #wearewayne
  • LHCWilson May 1 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    I'm sitting in it right now, on the back porch with the sun shining right on me as I Tweet! It is helping! Lol! #wearewayne

    One brain break activity is telling jokes. Some are duds and some have great punch lines.#wearewayne

  • BrittonWayneNWE May 1 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    A2 I dance with the students. They love it! #wearewayne
  • NWEFoust May 1 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    A2: Meditation! Full, on-the-floor, lights-out, guided meditation for 5 minutes--as needed. #WeAreWayne
  • Erwin13Alicia May 1 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    A2: jumping jacks and basketball shots between tasks are the favorites of my 6th graders #wearewayne
  • emleonard111 May 1 @ 8:16 PM EDT
    A2: You can never go wrong with some Just Dance or GoNoodle fun. Our students can really bust a move at NWE! #WeAreWayne
  • MrsCarlino May 1 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    • MrsCarlino May 1 @ 8:13 PM EDT
      A2: We’ve gone outside to complete lessons to get a break from being in the classroom for months. BDU’s campus is awesome for having lunch outdoors too. A change of scenery is much needed!

  • MrsWey10 May 1 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    Hello! A1: Now that the weather is nice, anything & everything outdoors! #WeAreWayne
  • emleonard111 May 1 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    Q3: How can we engage learners over summer break? #WeAreWayne
  • mrs_nohren May 1 @ 8:18 PM EDT
  • MrsWey10 May 1 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    A2: dance battles are the students’ favorite and/or singing! #WeAreWayne
  • Dr_G_Alazar May 1 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    A2: Since the weather is nice outside I see many teachers @WayneTwpSchools taking their classrooms outdoor. #wearewayne
  • MrsCarlino May 1 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A3: I’ve been talking up books to read over summer. Recruiting new members for clubs next year and giving pseudo projects for the summer, though our juniors are headed to #xmester and our incoming sophomores will have an amazing summer bridging program too! #wearewayne
  • LHCWilson May 1 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A3 Invite incoming 6th graders and 7th into 8th to LHC's Around the World With STEAM Summer School! We're going to have a BLAST! #wearewayne

  • jclambert33 May 1 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A3: use technology, send some #snailmail, maybe host a get together- stay connected with that relationships piece and have them set some goals b/f the end of the year #WeareWayne
  • mrs_nohren May 1 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A3: providing students with resources for continuous learning (online educational websites, apps, camps, school functions) #wearewayne
  • MrsWey10 May 1 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A3: take advantage of technology and stay connected! Reading book clubs, summer lunch, summer safari, online platforms to conduct educational chats! #WeAreWayne
  • smithkteacher May 1 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    I enjoy a good dance battle! #wearewayne @NWEFoust @emleonard111

  • BrittonWayneNWE May 1 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A3 Provide students with a take home summer kit with books, handouts and manipulatives. Also, provide list of summer activities in the city. #wearewayne
  • Dr_G_Alazar May 1 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A3: Tap into their interest and #Inspired them to read a book or two. #wearewayne
  • NWEFoust May 1 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A3: I’d like to challenge students to document their summer with photos and have them create a photo essay in August. #wearewayne
  • WayneTwpSuper May 1 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A3: What an awesome question. We need to first be creative. Second, we need to provide opportunities to engage...both in person and virtually. Lastly, provide many opportunities through @WayneTwpSchools @WayneTwpEdFound and others for students to choose from. #wearewayne
  • miss_utley May 1 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    Q3 last summer I kept in touch with my students through class dojo setting up weekly challenges, as well as putting stamped envelopes in their end of year baskets allowing them to write me throughout the summer! It was really fun seeing the growth of my kinders! #wearewayne
    In reply to @emleonard111
  • emleonard111 May 1 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A3: Stay connected with parents and students through Class Dojo. Send out reminders for fun activities to do over break. #WeAreWayne
  • Erwin13Alicia May 1 @ 8:25 PM EDT
    A3: Summer reading clubs at fun locations and continuing with the design process to create prototypes - plan, create, iterate! #wearewayne
  • NWEFoust May 1 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    Q4: What are some ways you are looking to grow your own learning over Summer Break? #WeAreWayne
  • WayneTwpSuper May 1 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A4: The journey to continue our learning is real. So glad in @WayneTwpSchools there are so many summer PD opportunities. #wearewayne
