Children love to play, and what better time than the summer holidays. With over three months of absolutely nothing, kids can play as much as they want. This is well deserved after a hectic semester.
But is that all they can do during the summer holiday? Summer learning not only refreshes the brain on what was taught the previous year but also teaches a lot of new things while still leaving enough time for kids to have fun. So all their vacation plans, internships, and visits can still happen while they remain abreast with their studies.
Why is Summer Learning Important?
The summer break is a crucial resting period between academic years. Many students take this time to unwind and enjoy the luxuries of being a child.
The problem, however, is that most students completely ignore their studies. After all, there are no tests or evaluation exercises to motivate students to study. This is where summer learning comes into play. Programs like ours serve as a bridge linking the previous year to the coming one. Unlike regular school calendars, summer lessons are brief, and it discusses what was taught during the last year as well as what students are expected to learn in the new session.
Recall what has been taught.
Studying during the summer helps students recall what was taught the previous year and reduces academic stress by keeping them updated on what to expect in the coming year. Our job is to make learning as easy as possible.
Prepare for the coming year.
Students come along with the syllabus for the next academic session. We use this to prepare them, so school feels more like revision. This makes them more active in class discussions because they are already familiar with the terms being taught.
During the summer, students can set out time to look through their report cards and identify areas of weakness. We can then work with them and develop their understanding of complex topics or subjects.
This goes a long way in building a child’s confidence and improving academic performance.
Learn at your pace and convenience
One of the most exciting characteristics of summer lessons is their flexibility. With summer lessons, there is no real pressure on students to learn fast or at the same pace as others. Students can focus and learn at a leisurely pace. This kind of situation is ideal for helping a student discover their learning process and rekindle their love for learning.
Freedom like this also improves their confidence and helps them feel more prepared for the coming school year. When students don’t experience a summer gap in learning, they are better prepared for success right from the start of the new calendar year.
