Greeting students and providing an encouraging comment as they enter the room is a strategy great teachers use to create a positive classroom climate.
Have you thought about using the same train of thought at the end of a class period or school day? What ends your time with your students: the bell, or you?
Finishing strong with a positive, meaningful message is a great way to send your students on their way. You can use quotes, videos, poems, short stories, class mottoes or pledges to end each class.
