Christmas break is the most wonderful time of the year for students, right? Not for all of them. As teachers, we know that many students dread the thought of Christmas break. They may feel like they have nothing to look forward to or worry about not being able to get through the break without their teachers.

Here are a few tips for helping your students get through some difficult times during Christmas break:

  1. Talk to your students about their feelings. Let them know that it’s normal to feel a range of emotions during Christmas break and that it’s okay to be happy, sad, excited, and scared all at the same time.
  2. Help your students find ways to stay connected to their school community. This could include staying in touch with their classmates via social media or email, participating in online discussions, or watching class videos or reading assignments.
  3. Encourage your students to take care of themselves both physically and mentally during Christmas break. This could include getting plenty of sleep, eating healthy foods, and spending time with friends and family.
