Going back to school is going to be different this year. As students continue to stay home and focus their attention to online education, there will be a learning curve as they adjust to the new environment. Here are some considerations to help make the transition easier.
1. Set Up Social Events
Although learning is the main reason why we go to school, education also gives children the chance to socialize and build relationships with others. Even though your child will be learning from home, you should make sure they still have time to socialize with their classmates. You can do this by setting up a virtual zoom call or a socially distanced playdate.
2. Encourage Better Eating
Now that your child is not eating to-go lunch, you can now encourage your child to eat healthier meals. By promoting healthier eating, it will give them more energy and focus on tackling their classes and their schoolwork.
3. Get Organized
When your child goes to school in person, they usually have folders, binders and a backpack to keep their stuff together. Now that they do not need to physically bring their belongings to class every day, it is important to make sure they have an organized workstation. Keep their school notes, homework and classwork organized to be able to find it when they need it. When there is an uncluttered workspace, it helps your child be more productive and their mind will feel less stressed and cluttered.
4. Be Available
Learning from home is not the same as getting personalized help in person and being able to ask the teacher questions. Try to be there for your child if they do not understand something or start to become frustrated.
5. Take Breaks
Sitting at a computer for too long is not healthy and it makes it more challenging to concentrate. Encourage your child to take breaks throughout the day to make sure they do not become overwhelmed and exhausted.
