3 Most Productive Ways To Spend The March Holidays

Term 1 is almost over and the March holidays are just around the corner. Deciding how to spend the holidays can be tricky for both parents and students. On one hand, parents would want to ensure that their child is being productive during this time. On the other hand, students would want to rest or catch up on their sleep but most importantly, have some fun.

With that being said, spending hours on end playing video games is not an ideal situation. Instead, productive fun is the way to go. This would allow students to get their much-needed rest while also making sure that they’ll be spending their holidays doing something productive. 

3 most productive ways to spend the march holidays

Looking for tips to put this idea into practice? You’re at just the right place. 

Here are 3 ways to make the March holidays productive for your child: 

1. Volunteer

Our first suggestion to make the March holidays a productive one for your child is by setting some time aside for volunteer efforts. Volunteering is a great way to spend some time bonding with your child. 

It’s also an effective way to find a purpose or passion that your child would like to build their efforts towards.

Here are 5 causes that you and your child could serve: 

  • Clean up a beach 
  • Offer a helping hand at an old age home
  • Deliver meals to those in need
  • Help out at an animal shelter
  • Sign up as ‘befrienders’ and bring joy to patients at hospitals 

Many organisations are in need of volunteers. Why not make the most out of this holiday? After all, it’s a win-win deal – you’d get to spend some quality time with your child and help those in need too.

2. Keep fit and healthy

Apart from the weekly Physical Education lessons at school, students spend most of their school day sitting at their desks. And when they’re home after a long day of classes, they’re usually tied down to homework and revision. 

As such, gelling physical activity into their routine would require conscious effort. With the incoming holidays, students would have more time to themselves. Thus, making this the perfect opportunity to encourage a healthier lifestyle. 

Need some ideas? Here’s a bunch of them: 

  • Go cycling
  • Try trekking or hiking 
  • Get in some laps when you go swimming 
  • Initiate a family game of badminton 
  • Give inline skating a shot 

Of course, staying healthy doesn’t end at getting some movement in! Ensure that your child is also eating healthy and prioritising their mental health. 

Keep a lookout on what your family has for meals – cut down on unhealthy food and include fruits and vegetables in your child’s diet. Remind them to take regular breaks when in the midst of revising too. Check in on how they’re feeling and be a companion – let them know you’re there for them. 

Try these simple strategies this holiday so your child stays fit and healthy. Over time, you can adapt these tips into their daily lives too. 

3. Plan for Term 2

The best way to plan ahead for Term 2 is by getting your child to reflect on the previous term. Spend some time with your child to identify topic(s) that they may have struggled with in Term 1. Doing so would tell students what they need to improve on in the future.

Is your child struggling with learning about real-world applications of topics taught in school? The interactive video lessons available on KooClass relate Math and Science topics to their everyday life so they know how to apply these concepts to the world around them. 

They can also get a head-start on Term 2 topics and attempt practice questions through Mission. Students can practice skills relevant to every topic within their curriculum and answer the more challenging questions in tests and exams. 

Need an extra challenge? Get your child to try out some Higher-Order thinking skills (HOTS) questions! HOTS prepare students beyond the standard school Math curriculum, and improve their understanding in Math.
