Because of school closures throughout the area, parents are getting first hand lessons in how challenging a teacher’s job can be. Keep in mind, that the teacher has to manage 20 to 30 kids at a time! Thankfully, there is a lot of support being provided in the form of structured online assignments. This can make sure your kids can keep up with their classwork and still finish out the year as they would in school. There is still a bit of a learning curve with home-schooling. Here is the smart approach to take to make the most of your home-schooling time:
Make a Schedule
You want to maintain some level of normalcy when it comes to your home-schooling. That can being with keeping everyone on the same bedtime and wake up schedules. This is not the time to allow late-night TV viewing. You should also establish a schedule for the actual assignments. You’ll find that instead of doing homework after dinner, all of the school work can be accomplished in morning and afternoon sessions.
Make Sure to Take Breaks
Even with that schedule, you can still be flexible. You want to make sure you have plenty of breaks throughout the day. After all, that is what you kids have going on at school! Some of those breaks can be “motivational.” You can let the kicks spend time playing video games or watching a favorite TV show is they finish their morning session. The breaks are not only important for the kids but also for you!
Set Up a Class Zone
You should try to create a dedicated class zone for the home-schooling. You might want to supplement the class lesson with some bulletin board action. There will also be a need for a printer and computer. It might mean turning your dining room into a class room for the duration of the home schooling.
Make a Clutter Free Environment
It will also help if you can keep up with the house work while sheltering-in-place. Your kids can pitch in. In fact, you might find them a bit more cooperative because they are looking for things to do! Going through the house and setting aside all those clutter items to get rid of can create a positive living environment.
