Teaching Strategies for After Midyear Break

Many schools in the U.S. take a midyear break, a much-needed break from the long winter days being trapped in a classroom.
But the re-entry after a midyear break can be a tricky one. You need to preplan some effective teaching strategies to help you come back to class prepared.
Janelle Cox, a TeachHUB.com contributing writer who is also a veteran elementary school educator based on the East Coast, today takes a look at some of these teaching strategies that you can use to break through the craziness and chaos that often accompanies the return from midyear break.
Janelle’s ideas include:
  • Talk About the Students’ Adventures
  • Be Ready for the Unexpected
  • Prepare for the Chaos
  • And More!

Janelle encapsulate her article like this: “Returning from midyear break doesn’t have to be a chore or a struggle. All you have to do is overplan, set your expectations low, and plan something for you to look forward to. Once you do all of that, it will be smooth sailing and you can enjoy your break.”
