After students come back to school after a vacation, how can you get them back on track quickly?
By vacation I mean after a holiday like Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
Hmm, do you mean how they are still buzzing from their vacation? I would probably get them to briefly talk about what they did and interweave it into the lesson plan.
For instance, "Do you know why we had yesterday off?" - and that could begin the history lesson. Children and adults aren't very different, when you think about it. Adults want to talk about what they did over vacation, and so do the kids. They aren't going to want to just *hit the books* right away. I think a savvy instructor would use a clever segue so that the process looks more or less seamless to a casual observer.
I think it's easier to get the kids to gear into the lesson plan when it seems relevant to what they recently experienced.
I let students talk about what they did for the holiday - I give them each a minute or two...then when we are all done, I tell them that it's time to get back to work and just follow our regular routine...since many of my students need the structure, they readily get back to work...

For the teachers out there - how long does it take you to prepare and write a lesson plan?All lessons require some preparation, but how much is too much? How much is too little? And how much is just right?Obviously there will be differences between subjects, if you work with or without a textbook,...
