HOLIDAYS’ HOMEWORK, 2013
Summer Vacations are at our doorsteps. Holidays are a well deserved opportunity to relax and rewind by indulging in activities that are pleasurable and at the same time educative. It is also a time to explore the exciting city of Delhi, visit places of interest and gather information about the magnificent monuments. Holidays’ Homework has been designed to fire the imagination of students while exciting them to explore, discover and reinvent. It is desirable that students work independently and seek assistance as and when required.
A few suggestions to be kept in mind.
Spend quality time with your children. Take them to see places of interest in Delhi. Remember to make notes and click photographs of the places you visit. Help your children to become independent by giving them responsibilities. Involve them in small household activities. Inculcate in them good manners, healthy habits and respect for elders. Help to imbibe the feelings of empathy, affection and tolerance in your children. Give them a chance to look after you and their younger brothers and sisters. Converse with your children in English. ‘Reading maketh a full man ’. Encourage your child to read well. Ensure that the choice of books he/she reads is purposeful while being entertaining. Let your child take classes in performing arts. Help your children improve their handwriting by making them write one page of English and one Page of Hindi everyday. Cultivate sportsmanship by encouraging your children to play various indoor and outdoor games. ‘Walking for Health’ is promoted by all doctors. Accompany your child for ‘morning walk’ daily.
: Do not get the Holidays’ Homework done by an expert. It must be the effort of the child. Parents must act as guides and facilitators but not substitutes to do the work. The Homework must be done systematically according to the time table made on the very first day. Holidays’ Home work should be seen as an interesting activity that helps in mental and physical development of the child.
