#Teacher5aday Calendar is back!

For the third year running your build up to Christmas can be filled with well-being goodness. All you have to do is get involved with the next set of #teacher5aday challenges over the course of December.

Following on from the amazing success of #teacher5aday #photo in November a fantastic array of #volunteers this year have offered to host a day each of the calendar building up to Christmas. They will each open a door of the calendar to reveal their challenge with the aim to get as many tweachers and teachers alike involved in something that will enhance their Christmas cheer.


Following in the footsteps of Tim Clark’s excellent brace of #calendars

2015 Calendar blog-

the #teacher5aday team of Santa’s little helpers have listed their challenges below.

Your challenge should you choose to accept it is to take the #teacher5aday #calendar and place it somewhere prominent in your staff room. Each day print out the challenge so more teachers who are not on twitter can begin to understand that there are a growing number of colleagues around who understand that happy teachers + happy students = improved results.

If you want to participate on twitter as well, make sure you tweet a picture of you and your colleagues completing your daily challenge and remember to include the hashtags #teacher5aday and #calendar.

If you would like to get involved and co-host a day then please get in touch and if you would like to know anymore about #teacher5day check out the blogs below.
