💖 5 Home-schooling Tips - Learning in Lockdown 💖
-
1. Zero Pressure
-

Do not put pressure on yourself or children. Everyone’s mental health is paramount. You’re not a teacher, you’re providing emergency remote learning during a pandemic. It’s not easy, take your time and be easy on yourself and your kids.

-

2. Start early & do short bursts

-

It's a good idea to start with home-schooling early in the day. If you let your child watch tv or play outside, it will be harder to get them to sit down and concentrate on something that probably isn’t their first choice of activity!  Lessons don’t need to be long, fifteen minute bursts of max concentration is far better than one hour of distractions and potential arguments.

-

3. Create visual timetables

-

Trying to fit your own work/tasks in to the day is a logistical nightmare, even more so when your little ones are too young to understand ‘Mummy is busy’.   Create visual timetables for the day and create a timetable for yourself of when you can be flexible for a cuddle, run around the garden or Lego time.

-

4. Set up a 'work space'

-

Make sure you set up a workplace for your child outside of their bedroom. It is important for them to have a space they can return to after home-schooling that is fun and relaxing.

-

5. Snack box

-

@thisgirlcanorganise suggests a snack box for the day for each child, full of fruit, drinks, and yummy treats. Children can get what they want from their box whenever they want, but when it’s gone, it’s gone.
