For those students not leaping with joy about the end of the school year, some web resources to help families work around anxiousness, worrying, and/or sadness:
- Please Don’t Go: Alleviating Separation Anxiety
- Transitions: Let’s Have a Discussion (meant for teachers but would work at home)
- How to Prepare Your Child …
- Last Day of School Sadness
I found all these sites by “Googling” and I’m sure there are many more! Allowing your child simply to voice his or her feelings often goes a mile towards improving things, and these websites contain specific suggestions on how to do so.
