Help students make the most of their break
And that’s important for their development. Teaching kids early that time off doesn’t necessarily mean time wasted is valuable for later life. Adults know that a weekend off from work often means a weekend at work in the yard, around the house, spent going through financial information or handling other duties associated with being a responsible individual.
That’s key. Responsibility means teaching children that breaks like this are the time to write those book reports due soon after the start of the year.
