Hi everyone! I’m Stephanie Hamilton and I am the Media & Marketing Specialist with My School Dance. The social interactions between today’s teens are a lot different than they used to be. If you haven’t already noticed more teenagers than ever constantly have their faces buried in their cell phones. This is a reoccurring issue that needs to be fixed. But how?
My solution is to have more “classroom bonding sessions/events” for teenagers whether this consists of something to do in the classroom or a type of field trip. This allows the students the chance to interact with one another and participate in a fun activity. It’s important to find activities that will allow the students to not constantly be on their cell phones. Since we are in the month of October, I included some festive bonding activities below to take back to your school:
What’s nice about having bonding events is, for the most part, the students won’t be glued to their phones. They might take a few selfies here and there, but the events listed above require them to interact face-to-face. This time of year is the perfect time to get students bonding with one another and finding activities to do is a piece of cake!
If your school needs help managing events like these, My School Dance is the perfect platform to do so! My School Dance is used for any ticketed event that is for the students. If you haven’t signed your school up yet, create your My School Dance account for free and start planning your classroom bonding activities!
