Starting back to class after Christmas break can be an exercise in frustration. Finals are looming and you're looking out at the blank faces of students who have been used to sleeping in and doing what they want for the past few weeks. And there you are, faced with the tasks of finishing your curriculum and preparing them for final assessments.

I don't have a magic wand to make that all go away, but I do have two activities that you can use on the first day back. Both attempt to get the students focused on their upcoming assessments and do so in a way that will get them talking and moving around --and hopefully awake.

I hope it helps!
