Join Me for the Summer Fun Challenge

I don’t know about you, but my family has been counting down to summer since Christmas. This past year was just hard – mentally and physically. All we want to do right now is relax.

Recognizing teachers feel the same way, I threw out my Type A summer work plans and started over. To help everyone kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves, I am holding the Summer Fun Challenge from June 5 to August 6.

There’s no catch – nothing to buy, no crazy requirements to follow a million people and tag all your friends. Just complete an activity of your choice each week and post a photo to have a chance at a prize.

Who Can Participate?

This contest is for teachers or homeschool parents. The contest will be held in the Upper Elementary Teachers’ Lounge Facebook Group, where we have a growing teacher community.

You do not need to be an upper elementary teacher, but the prizes will be most useful for grades 2 – 8. 

What Do I Have To Do? 

To participate, you need to join the Facebook Group to interact and submit your entries on the weekly posts. 

Each week will have a general theme. Participants just need to do something related to the theme that they think is fun, then post a pic of their activity by the end of the week. The weekly themes are:

  • June 5th – The Arts
  • June 12th – Food
  • June 19th – Games
  • June 26th – Get’er Done
  • July 3rd – Family & Friends
  • July 10th – Unplug
  • July 17th – Spread Kindness
  • July 24th – Nature
  • July 31st – Free Choice

It doesn’t matter how you relax, because the Summer Fun Challenge is set up to work for everyone. Whether you are a teacher who loves to be active outside or a teacher who could happily stay in and read a book all day, you can play!

Are There Prizes?

Did I mention there will be weekly prizes? That’s right – prizes for relaxing. We will randomly select three winners each week.

However, anyone who participates all summer can submit a form for an exclusive resource during the final week. If you miss a week, you can make up the activity – you just won’t have had a chance at that week’s prize drawing.

Join The FB Group!

The Summer Fun Challenge will take place in the Upper Elementary Teachers’ Lounge Facebook Group – be sure to join the group. I look forward to seeing you there!
