Dear Students Greetings! Summer vacation is a time when we play, enjoy waking up late, going out somewhere to spend some days, shopping and have loads of fun with our friends and family. Many of us just end up being lazy in vacations because sleeping, chatting, eating and talking are mostly the only hobbies that we do to enjoy. On the other hand, we try to forget tonnes of school homework that we've got to do during the holidays! And finally when the school is about to reopen, we are in a fix and rush to complete all the homework on time. Here are a few tips that can help out • • • •
• • •
Try to spare two hours daily or on alternate days to do your homework. To keep the school homework interesting, give yourself some little tasks. Study effectively. As you are giving only a little time to your studies, so you should study during those hours when you are in an active frame of mind. Studying consecutive for two hours can be a little boring for some of you. So take little breaks while reading or writing. You can do whatever you like in short breaks ‐‐ listen to your favourite song, watch something for a brief moment on TV or even have a chat with your siblings and then start with your homework again. Finish the ones that can be done individually, then ask your elders to help you with the remaining. Plan with your friends or cousins. Organise a day for combine study, share your homework, discuss important topics and guide each other. In case, you have to go somewhere with your family to spend a good part of the holidays, set a date to finish your homework beforehand so that you don't have to worry about it later.
