1. Get Your Students Moving
Student engagement has some pretty stiff competition. No matter what time of day it is, there’s a good reason for students to be tired: it’s morning, right before lunch, right after lunch, or the end of the day.
If your students are getting worn down, start by monitoring the amount of time per day they spend at their desks. If the answer is greater than 70%, consider getting your students moving through methods like rotating learning centers, ball-tossing, or the simple stand-up-and-stretch. This is especially important for the shorter attention spans of younger students.
