Summer Break is a time which all children and parents await.
The vacation should be packed with fun, frolic and learning coming along. Parents can churn out the best productive or quality time with children by helping them out with their summer projects. Projects comes as big ‘uff’ for parents, the reason being they find it an onerous job to accomplish till the time it is explained to them by the teacher as to how to undertake these projects so that their children are the benefited. The parents can very well harness a rapport and bond with their child while doing the projects together.
Execution of the projects with the child demands theoretical and practical implications which a parent and no one else can give the best to the child.
But if parents are not convinced enough that the projects have a bigger role and impact on the child if taken genuinely, the purpose of such projects given is killed at the very spot before inception. Such projects are equivalent to any other assignments which they take as routine and burden to do. Here comes the role of the teachers to change the perspective of parents towards such projects and that can be done when they are underling the very objective of these projects and backing them with a navigation map for the same. Now, with inputs and brainstorming sessions taken up by the teachers before, the handover of assignments will bring better learning outcome or cognition for children.
Let’s discuss how to go about while taking up a project on ‘making a first aid box.’ First aid box is to aid the trivial accidents which occur in one’s day to day life. Role of teaching is to brush up with the kids and come out with their insights as to why do we need a first aid box and what does it contain and how is it of great importance to be kept at a handy place. What is the underlying concept of having a first aid box at home is discussed extensively in class. These questions raised and answered will make the first aid box in “ abstract” and children will get back to their parents with clear minds as to , why, what and how they need to make a first aid box. Complete dossier is provided for all the articles and usage for the first aid box is just to serve better.
Parents work has been lightened as their and children’s interest in those projects has been kindled. Now they just have to together implement and execute on the guidelines given by the teacher. “Prelude” that has to be taken care of by the teacher shall be, to discuss the ‘ why’ exhaustively and dynamically that the real objective is achieved and the learning outcome is on the achieved
