Greater importance has been attached to education nowadays. Parents hope their children can study more so they can be more competitive. Longer periods of study, however, will not necessarily lead to effective learning. From my perspective, if there can be one-month break after three months of study, children will benefit more from education
We all have some experience of post-vacation blues and understand that a break meant to be relaxing actually can create post-vacation stress. What's worse, the longer the break, the harder it will be for us to resume the regular routine. The first day after a 7-day break is always tiring and tough. If children have a long break of 3 months, they will get used all the fun and exciting activities outside school, thus sitting in the classroom for most of the time during the day can be unbearable.
Second, children have the natural tendency to run, jump, and move around, while school life is mostly sedentary and requires a great deal of concentration. If children need to spend continual 9 months in the school without a break, their nature will be suppressed, thus leading to misbehavior and emotional issues, which is not conducive to effective learning. On the contrary, if children can have chance to play on a regular basis, they will be able to not only develop physical health, but also build healthy habits. Both can help them learn better.
Last but not least, The higher frequency of the breaks can provide opportunities for application of the knowledge to the real world in a timely manner. Students don’t have to wait until the 3-month break that comes at the end of the school year to carry out their practice. What's more, when playing with friends, children learn how to share and how to cooperate. When traveling with parents, children are introduced to new things and broaden their horizons. When spending time doing what they like, children can develop interests. All these activities outside school contribute to better learning in the school in turn. And more breaks let children always have chance to be in touch with the outside world.
Above all, the intervals between school sessions should be decreased in length but increased in frequency. Compared to the one-time break after long periods of study, the benefits of the one-month break after each three-month study lies in that it helps students to bounce back from the vacation to the regular life more easily, it allows children to enjoy their nature and develop healthy habits, and it provides opportunity for children to practice their knowledge and learn more about the real world in a timely manner.
