It’s November and Thanksgiving break is here! One week off from school to relax and eat lots of food. However, this doesn’t mean you should slack off. This is a chance to catch up on all that late work. The best way to enjoy your break and complete everything on time is by managing your time, and here’s how.
Spanish teacher, Ms. Linderwell, has advice on how to plan out your homework for your break. She says, “I would probably make myself a schedule because they (students) might have other things going on.” During the beginning of your Thanksgiving break, manage your time wisely and plan out what needs to be done. An easy way to start is by creating a schedule of when you’re going to finish your assignments.
Completing a majority or even all of your work at the beginning of the week will give you nothing to worry about for the rest of the week. Angel Bello, a junior, explains, “I complete a majority at once (homework) on the first few days. I enjoy my break because I just don’t like to think about school during my free-time.” Finishing all your work sooner or even completing a small amount each day will reduce the stress on the last day of your vacation.
Leaving a week’s worth of homework to the last day can be stressful. Some advice from Aylene Sedano, a junior, “Don’t procrastinate until the last day because it gets stressful. I procrastinated all my homework until the last Sunday right before school in previous years.” Aylene explains that even though she doesn’t worry about school throughout her week, she doesn’t look forward to the last day because there is a lot of work still left to do.
As stated before, this is the perfect opportunity to catch up on all that late work to get your grades up and maintain them. Make sure you don’t procrastinate or let your team members down for projects. Schedule out when you’re going to complete an assignment so you can relax throughout the week. Enjoy your Thanksgiving break!
