Back to School
Summer break is ending and the dreaded moment kids have been fearing all summer is finally approaching. Parents, on the other hand, must be excited to finally get their kids back to school. But, with so many extra-curricular activities for kids to choose from, what is the best option for kids or should they take a long break after school to relax and play?
The Importance of Extracurricular Activities
Many studies have been done to show the impact that extra-curricular activities can have on a child. “A study by the U.S. Department of Education revealed that students who participate in co-curricular activities are three times more likely to have a grade point average of 3.0 or better than students who do not participate in co-curricular activities.” These extra-curricular activities can help stimulate a child's brain by giving them an education that is different from what they may get at school.
Not only can extra-curricular activities help kids have better grades in school, they can also help prepare them for their future. Almost all colleges look at what students have done outside of their classes. They want to see that students have diversified their experience and not just participated in school. Extra-curricular activities, especially courses at Coder Kids, can help kids get a head start and learn skills that will advance them in their schooling and future career.
