Distance learning brings with it many adjustments, from settling into an at-home work environment and keeping kiddos occupied to managing assignments and establishing structure throughout the day. But with time, you and your students will get into a groove where your new, virtual form of instruction becomes (at least somewhat) the norm. Then comes another challenge: how do you keep students engaged from afar?
We realize these days look different from our normal routine, especially for students who are used to following a structured schedule within a classroom. While as parents and teachers, we may not be able to exactly replicate a classroom structure and schedule at home (and that’s OK), we can provide a sense of normalcy for our kids, and keep them learning through the days ahead. To make remote learning easier, we’ve provided five activities and scheduling resources that support learning from home.
We’re all in a strange place of uncertainty right now due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Schools have shut down, parents must balance remote work with childcare, and teachers are doing their best to maintain continuity of learning for their students.
