At LearningRx, we love seeing the joy on our students’ faces when they think about the holiday break and the two weeks or so off from school. We know that they’ve been studying hard and completing assignments with diligence, and taking a break from the stress of school can help prepare their brain for the second semester (or interterm, if they’re in college). As a brain training franchisee, there are a few things you can do to ensure progress isn’t lost over the long holiday break.
Encourage Holiday Break Brain Training Sessions
We know that families often travel over the holidays, and keeping their normal schedule with their brain trainer can be difficult. By offering flexible hours and having your staff work with their students on the best time to meet over the holidays, you can keep everyone moving forward with their cognitive improvement. You may also have a holiday party at your LearningRx location, where you show your appreciation for your staff, students, and the parents who bring their children to the brain training center on a regular basis.
Advocate for Independent Reading and Research
LearningRx programs are designed to help students improve their reading comprehension, memory retention, and other key cognitive skills. If a student has a favorite author who has a new book they’ve been dying to read, encourage them to pick up the book and sit down with it on those cold, snowy days when they can’t go outside. If they’re interested in science and technology, urge them to try some at-home experiments or to inspect that new gadget they receive as a holiday gift. The classroom isn’t the only place where education can take place, and setting their own goals and parameters for an assignment or experiment is a great way to bolster their love of learning.
Set Up a Plan for the New Year
Everyone makes New Year’s Resolutions, but many people do away with them before January is over. With brain training, it can be beneficial to create a plan for the New Year in terms of where a student wants to be by the time the second semester is over. Every student will progress at a different rate, and our brain training programs have well-defined metrics to show how far someone has come. If they’re attempting to read at a higher grade level, or they want to be able to lead a group assignment before the school year is over, help them define the steps they need to get there.
At LearningRx, we want to help students of all ages all year round, and that means encouraging them to remain diligent and dedicated during their holiday break. It’s a great time away from school, where they’re able to do those things they want to do, and with your franchise location, bettering their brains will hopefully be one of those things!
