Tackling the Post-Holiday Back-to-School Blues. For many students the winter break is a time for rest, relaxation, and rewards. Some of our students will return to school slowly, dragging their heels. So, how can we get our students back on track and motivated that first day? Here are a few activities I have planned for my students to help them get excited about their return to school.
I used this as a motivation for positive behaviors one week. If the students had a good week, they earned the ticket being hole punched which meant they got to cuddle up and watch The Polar Express with some hot cocoa and home made chocolate chip cookies. Let's say, we had a TERRIFIC week! : )
