Summer Hiatus & Back to Schoolby JBM Global Teacher
First the anticipation of vacations and finally gearing up and getting used to lazy mornings and suddenly the hiatus is over and back to school. Over are the lazy days of summer or children doing activities or playing in their own time. After weeks of summer holidays, playing, exploring, family trips, visits to grandma and grandpa’s place, it can be challenging for children to go back to school as they might feel anxious or excited about seeing friends again or upset that holidays are over, concerned about work load and keeping up with school work and curriculum. The emotions of a great many parents more closely resemble sadness, anxiety and even resentment. But in general, we get to see reenergized smiling faces rearing to go.
Every Summer has its own story!
Children of all ages have different experiences of going back to school and parents should tune in to work out how their children are coping and what they are feeling.
The first day of school can be crazy. It’s perfectly normal to feel weird, nervous and upset on the first day of school. Getting back to school routine, adjusting to new workloads takes time after a long summer break.
For the child who is going to school in noida for the first time, parents have a very special role to play. Most children have gone to a play school or nursery and are happy to go to a big school. While there is excitement, there is also nervousness. So, prepare your child for that. If it is not a new term but just reopening after a short break, students must check their homework list. Ensure that children have completed their homework and projects. Check if their uniforms still fit (children are prone to shoot up suddenly in the holidays), they have the socks, sports uniform and shoes as per specification.
Teachers of schools in Noida and their parents voice concerns about the possible negative impact of summer vacation on student learning. As children learn best when instruction is continuous, the long summer vacation breaks the rhythm of instruction, leads to forgetting and requires a significant amount of review of material when students return to school in the fall. Also, the long summer break can have a greater negative effect on the learning of children with special educational needs.
Your relationship with your child is always much more important than any behaviors you are trying to change. This perspective and the bond it nurtures between you and your child, will carry you right through until next summer. Building your child’s sense of resilience can be one way to help them tackle any back to school challenges.
Best Nursery school in greater noida urges parents to motivate children towards the activities which only school can offer and make most of hiatus in terms of family reunion which summer vacations offer.
