Make the most of summer vacations: study tips for students
1. Start newspaper reading, go for building new skills
Summer vacation is the best time when you can explore, play around with different things and develop some effective skills for proper growth and development. In regular school days, later attending tuition or doing self-studies don’t give students time to do other things like newspaper reading or storybook reading.
However, summer vacation provides students with plenty of time to develop these reading skills. Every morning you can start your day by reading the newspaper. This will help you to enhance your general knowledge, communication, and vocabulary. You can also read some interesting novels of your age group before going to bed or at any time of the day. This will contribute a lot to your academic journey.
2. Develop a proper study timetable
All students must make a proper timetable. Divide the time into studying at least two to three academic subjects every day. You should also have time for extracurricular activities and sports. After making a study schedule, make sure to stick to it. This will help students to be more active and productive.
3. Avoid excessive social media time and phone games
Many students have a habit of spending too much time on social media. Scrolling through social media accounts, and chatting with friends for a long time makes you less productive, and leads to time wastage. Also playing video games excessively affects health and studies. All students must realize the importance of available time. Try to limit your social media time as much as possible. Make a balance between your learning and leisure activities.
4. Hold a good command over the lessons completed till now
To meet the objectives of education, and achieve a proper academic understanding, self-efforts are very important. All students must self-study every day during the summer vacations. The chapters that are completed in the class till now, make sure to hold an effective command over them. Read the lessons thoroughly and go through the class notes. Also, memorize the theory lessons in small portions every day. Along with this, practice five-word problems or numerical daily to grow your applicative skills. Once done with this, you can try to have a gist and basic understanding of the next term syllabus.
5. Use technology
Yes, in summer vacations we all love traveling. Students without their families go to their favorite destination places or other grandparents’ houses too. Along with enjoying it, you can become productive in your studies too. Without any need to carry textbooks and a bunch of guides along, you can study easily by using technology. By using online teaching apps and sites, students can access several audiovisual tools like educational video modules, demonstrations, picture cards, PowerPoint presentations, and more. These learning resources can be accessed at any time from anywhere to have quality studies. So do go for this.
6. Do your holiday homework wisely
Many students keep chilling throughout the summer vacations and only in the last few days do they start doing their holiday homework. Because of the time constraints, students simply copy-paste the content from the internet, buy ready-made projects from the market or ask their elders to do it.
This must be avoided. Teachers give holiday homework for students’ academic well-being and growth. So students must understand its importance and should be accountable. Do your homework wisely. Practice time management, take help from elders or explore the internet. Collect information, add your knowledge, and creativity, and do the work on your own.
Summer vacation is the best time for students in the whole academic year. This gives students a good amount of time to chill, relax and enjoy. However, focusing on studies is equally important.
