PHILIPPINES – Summer is finally here, but for students across the nation, learning never stops. With the new school calendar and activities for 2022-2023 of the Department of Education (DepEd) or the DepEd Order No. 34, s. 2022, students are missing out on the fun in summer, and it’s not just because of the intense heat.
The new schedule has left many students feeling blue because they are missing out on the usual summer activities. To help parents keep the fun in learning during this supposed vacation season, Quipper, one of the leading edtech and LMS platforms in the Philippines, has shared some tips.
1. Protect Your Children from the Summer Heat
Summer in the Philippines can be highly detrimental to students’ health. The intense heat can hinder them from performing at their best in school, especially now that they are back in face-to-face classes. As a parent, it is crucial to equip your children with summer gear to protect them from the summer heat. This gear should include a fan, umbrella, handkerchief, water bottle, and sunscreen.
2. Plan Educational Trips
Plan trips to museums, zoos, parks, or other educational attractions during their free time. These outings provide opportunities for children to learn about history, science, and the natural world in a fun and interactive way. Encourage them to ask questions, take notes, and take pictures. Afterwards, discuss what they learned and how it connects to other things they know.
3. Be Present in Your Child’s Learning Journey
Parents must be hands-on and present in their child’s learning, especially when burnout hits. If your child shows signs of exhaustion or burnout, be there on their journey to recover and find their motivation. Support them if they are struggling and always understand their shortcomings.
4. Quipper Parent’s App: Your New Partner in Learning
Quipper has an app dedicated to parents called Quipper Parent’s App, which enables you to supervise and assist your child’s learning progress by monitoring their activities and deadlines. With this app, you can ensure that your child is on track and not feeling overwhelmed.
5. Encourage Your Children to Pause and Rest
Summer is still about vacation and rest. Encourage your children to take a break from learning and enjoy the season. Allow them to spend weekends with their friends or treat them to a nice weekend getaway. All these will refresh their minds and help them conquer the summer blues.
