The answers will depend on each child and their circumstances, but what is certain is that summer is a perfect time to change the chip and begin to see learning as fun, relaxed, useful, surprising and essential. It is worth setting study guidelines according to the interests and shortcomings of each child and for this it is important to take the following aspects into account:


  • Planning

First, a moment of pause after school is essential. Reset and have a blank mind so that the child can sit with us and actively comment on their needs.

Remember that not all learning is textbook.

The child must feel that he is on vacation. Relaxing, playing, sleeping soundly, enjoying ourselves and us of him will be fundamental aspects to fulfill. We can also take advantage of these months to strengthen collaborative learning , coexistence or develop daily skills that require responsibility and a creative spirit, such as cooking, ordering and decorating a room or the garden of the house, planning the week …
