Every parent wants their child to excel at school. Now because of school closures, the parents are now taking the lead with teaching their kids with home-schooling. That is a new experience for many parents. Thankfully, the schools are doing a good job providing assignments online. Here are some smart ways on how to make home-schooling work:
Take Turns with Your Partner
As the saying goes, “teamwork makes the dream work.” This is why you want to share the teaching responsibilities with your partner. It might be that you each have a favorite subject that you want help with. Supporting each other will allow you to give each other a much-needed break.
Keep Your Kids Connected
It is important to keep your kids connected with their classmates and that is easy through FaceTime, Skype or other online video chat methods. These can be regular chats with a few kids at a time. This will let the kids share what they are feeling and help break up their day.
Look for Extracurricular Activities
Although you will be getting the classwork online you can also go online to find extracurricular activities for the kids to explore. A lot of teachers have stepped up across the country and are putting up special fun lessons on YouTube. Not only are these videos something to get the kids involved in at home but it also is another terrific way to score a break when they are watching the videos!
Make Time For Recess
Don’t forget that a big part of your kid’s school day is recess. You want to make sure to break up your lessons with playtime. That can also be used as a motivation to get through their lesson work. Recess shouldn’t just be about watching their favorite TV show. You want to get them outside and keep them active.
Keep Up with The Chores
It is also important during homeschooling that you keep up with the chores. It might seem like things are a bit topsy-turvy but having the regular structure of cleaning rooms, doing the dishes and helping with other household tasks can reinforce the idea that you’re all working together. As you do your chores, you might also realize that there are plenty of things in the house that you would like to get rid of.
