Parents…How is Homeschooling Going So Far???
Teachers…How is the Online Education Going for You???
I thought I would take some time to provide you with a little help and a few ideas on how to make your new job, parents…teaching…more manageable and fun. And teachers…some ways to help you also.
First off, remember that your child’s emotional health is way more important than any skill you will be helping them with. Learning should be challenging, but also fun and stress-free. So, don’t get overwhelmed…just go with the flow…slow and easy is the best way. Remember, the turtle won the race and you can also!
For me, students always worked better when there was a routine to follow. So, you need to set up some type of routine/schedule. Because you have this, it does not mean that you cannot deviate from it when you need to. It will be there when you return. ;-)
Here are some that I found on the Internet that may work for you depending on the age of your children…
If those don’t work for you, here is a website that will help with making that schedule so it fits you, your family, and your routine…
Here are some FREE websites that your kids may enjoy…
