Parent Tip of The Week: Managing Distance Learning
Families that have several children may find themselves struggling with how to balance distance learning for everyone. Remember this is new to all of us, even teachers! If your family is struggling, let the teacher know so they can support you and make changes.
Here are a few tips to help:
- Have your children help decide on a flexible schedule. School work might not always have to be during the traditional “school day”.
- Ask older children to help younger children when possible.
- Expect older children to be able to work independently with some check-ins to help them plan what to do next.
- Help each child find what learning environment works best for them.
- Give everyone breaks for movement, games, and fun. This can be done all together as a family.
When things get hard and you feel overwhelmed by all the things expected of you, choose an activity to connect with each other. Next week we will share some creative ideas on how to connect with your family in new ways.
