No Homework Day
It doesn’t matter if you are still at school, homework can be frustrating. Nobody likes to do homework every day. It can even be stressful and can hinder learning, rather than help it.
There is no Homework Day to spare you the long hours. You have the freedom to do whatever you like! We’ll be discussing the history of No Homework Day here at Days of the Year.
Thomas and Ruth Roy from Wellcat.com created No Homework Day to encourage students to focus on other activities than homework. Parents can give their children a break and schools will not assign homework during this time.
Some studies have shown that homework can cause stress and can even be detrimental to learning. It can take up time that could be used for other activities and make it difficult to understand its importance in learning. Duke University professors suggest that homework should be subject to the 10-minute rule.
They believe that homework should be tailored to each student. It’s not about eliminating homework entirely, but rather allowing students to relax and take a step back. No Homework Day gives children the freedom to do what they want.
Parents and students are encouraged to have a No Homework Day. It doesn’t matter if you want to read a book, create art, play a sport or do anything else.
This is your perfect excuse to do whatever you like, when you want. While homework is a great tool for learning, it’s not the right thing to do just for the sake. It can be stressful to do homework so it is important to take a break. It allows people to live their lives freely and pursue what they want.
You can make the most of this opportunity to discover other interests you have been putting off because of school or simply go out to have fun. Volunteer to support your local community.
To improve your skills, take an extra-curricular class like cooking or art. Take a walk or go to the gym to get in some exercise. This is a great time to tidy up your home and make it look good.
You don’t have to do anything but relax, watch movies and sleep. This holiday is a great opportunity to share this holiday with your family and friends, and give them a break from their homework.
