Post-Holiday Classroom Activities

Many teachers struggle with re-energizing their classrooms after the holidays. Students are excited to be back with their friends, for sure, but they’re also still stuck in that twilight zone of late bedtimes and altered eating times, among other changes that happen anytime a lengthy break from school occurs.
Today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox illustrates how educators can design some classroom activities that incorporate what students did over their holiday breaks into the curriculum, so that students can quickly get back on track and get motivated to learn once again.
Some of these tactics include:
  • Make New Year’s Resolutions
  • Play a Fun Game
  • Host a Party
  • And More!
