Back to School: Remote Learning Tips
Posted by Jenny Maraccini on September 8, 2020
Back to School season looks different for all of us this year. Whether you are doing remote learning at home, or attending in-person school with new safety precautions, things are definitely different and will require schools and families to work together more than ever before.
We’ve compiled a few tips to help make the transition back to school a bit smoother.
Have a Designated Workspace
For those of us doing remote learning from home this year, it’s important to designate a space in your home as your child’s “classroom” or desk space stocked with all the supplies they might need. This will help keep them focused and help to keep work and play a bit separate. If you have more than one child at home doing distance learning, try to provide a separate space for each child, preferably in different rooms.
Set a Schedule – and Stick to it!
With school being so different for kids this year, it’s more important than ever to establish daily routines for you and your family. Everything from school to meals to sleep should happen at a set time each day so kids know what to expect and when.
Plan for Social Activities
Kids need kids. If you are doing remote learning, it’s important to find ways for your child to connect with their friends and be social— either virtually or in person, while maintaining physical distance of course. Adding opportunities like this into your weekly schedule will help kids feel refreshed and connected with their peers.
