Many parents across San Diego are discovering what it is like to be a teacher. That’s because they are deeply involved in home-schooling for the first time. Thankfully, the school districts have provided all of the class assignments that can help keep parents on track. But there is a lot more going on than just following the assignments. Here are some ways that you can make sure your home-schooling is productive:
Wake Up the Same Time
Getting ready for home-schooling should follow the same routines as when your kids go to their actual school. That means waking up at the same time, having breakfast and getting dressed for the day. After that, you can decide when the school session should start around the house. It will also help the kids to go to bed at the same time that they are used to. Technically, the “it’s a school night” rules are still in effect!
Set up a Classroom
By now, your kids probably have all of their books from school. Each day, you may be printing out assignments from their classes. They might also still be the need for using maps and a bulletin board to help supplement some of the lessons. This is why you should set up a classroom area in your house that is separate from the TV room. It could mean sacrificing your dining room for the duration of the home-schooling. Setting up this special zone will help the kids get focused because they know when they are sitting at their “desk” it is time to get the work done.
Make Time for Recess
If you think back to your school days, then you probably remember recess as some of the best time of the school day. Your kids are no different. That is why you need to make sure they get their recess time while at home. Recess shouldn’t be just taking a break from the books but could also include going outside to play for a little bit.
Keep Them Cleaning the House
It is also important that you keep the kids on their chore schedule. This is not an extended vacation. That means all the things they were doing to help around the house needs to continue. In fact, you should take this opportunity while everyone is home to go through the entire house and decide which items can be tossed out. A thorough decluttering like that will go a long way towards creating a positive living environment. Junk King San Diego is standing by to help facilitate pickup of all your unwanted items.
